WDS stopped working (PXE-E32, TFTP Time Out)


Tags: WDS | Windows | Windows 2008 R2

incase this happens to anyone else (just happened to me after installing an update on the server and a couple of clients i rebuilt wouldnt boot as they just hung waiting for a tftp offer)

has happened to me after a windows update on server 2008 r2 (aparantly happens on straight 2008 as well) basically its due to having dns server on the same machine as wds dns pinches the ports the tftp service needs. This can leed to pcs not booting at all just sitting there failing to tftp if their boot order has lan set higher than hdd.

run regedit and go to:


Right-click UdpPortPolicy, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.

Restart the Windows Deployment Services service.
