WDS + Server 2012 Issues

    Question

  • Hi,

    I just installed Server 2012 RC and installed following roles:
    ADDS+DNS+DHCP+WDS

    I
    configured the WDS in same way as I did in Server 2008R2 but I have challanges to get WDS work. I refreshed the WDS, make it sure that WDS Service is running, removed the WDS role+delete the RemoteInstall folder and then add the WDS role , still no luck.

    Foollowing WDS options are checked under WDS properties:
     > DO not listen DHCP ports.
     > Configure DHCP option to indicate that is PXE server also.

    Following error logs found:

    > WDSPXE
        Windows\System32\wdsdcpxe.dl

    >BINLSVC
      Unable to configure PHCP option.

    >WDSDCPXE
    Error occured while initializing.

  • Hi,

    At first, please make sure that the prerequisites roles for WDS are under the healthy status, you could verify the roles (AD DS + DNS + DHCP) in the dashboard, especially the DHCP role.

    Also you need to look into the Event Viewer to verify whether there are some related errors or warnings included or not.

    At the same time, you could run the following command in the command prompt with evaluated rights:

    WDSUTIL /Get-Server /Show:all /detailed

    Regards,
