    windows provisioning bsa 8.2

      I am trying to provision a vm with windows os. my pxe/tftp server is running on windows 2008 R2. I have attached the error I get. it`s trying to load a file that is not there where and how does the file get created? anybody know?

          Do you have a running Windows Provisioning Job?

            Ok, when the Windows Provisioning Job runs, it'll create a file under the PXE tree named for the IP address of the client in hex (so 10.0.0.1 becomes 0A000001).  Look for that file after the Provisioning Job starts.

              ok thanks i see the file that gets created when i run the provisioning job but it seems like it can`t get beyond the point of the file that i have included in the screenshot above.

              here is the pxe file

                can you setup wireshark on the network and see what's going on ?

                 

                do you have another system you could test this from ?

                  this is resolved. the issue was that the dhcp server was not sending the right router as an option to the client and therefore the pxe couldn't communicate with the target server.

                  thanks
