Setting up PXE booting
Hi I'm migrating to theopenem from WDS because Microsoft chose to deprecate WDS and it won't let me image with Windows 11 (rage!) and I am currently in the process of setting up a theopenem server.
It's a fresh install of Server 2016 and theopenem.
I followed the server installation documentation at:
I have set the manual IP, the organization name, created the COM server, the COM server cluster, set the provision key and token, generated the certificates, updated the web.config files, and installed the certificates.
I did not setup SMTP or LDAP. It said these were optional.
I am now trying to follow this video:
I'm following the video but when it gets to 1:01 and it says "Your settings change requires a new PXE boot file to be created" I don't see that. I get an error which says "Updated Settings Successfully, But Could Not Copy PXE Binaries On One Or More Com Servers. Check The Logs For More Info."
So I need help.
Where are these logs located?
Probable causes? Is there anything I can check to possibly fix this?
This is a bug since Winpe 32 bit not longer exists. It's already been fixed but hasn't been released yet. You can do this workaround for now until the next release.
There should be a folder called winpe_efi_64. Copy and paste it in the same directory and rename it to winpe_efi_32
I found the logs in the admin settings menu. There are a lot so I will export them and attach the log files here.
There aren't any Com server or imaging logs.
nevermind, looks like you aren't using winpe.
I don't see a winpe folder.
In C:\Program Files\Theopenem\tftpboot\static\
I see a grub, ipxe, and syslinux folder.
Difficult to say exactly, but seems like you missed a step somewhere when setting up the com server. Did the com server test complete?
Is the com server test where you put in the http://10.129.128.33:8888/Provision/VerifyDb link and it returns "60"? I am getting "60" as the result.
