I'm having problems getting boot actions to run. If I manually enter PXe boot mode everything runs fine, I can deploy and capture images with no problem. If I setup a boot action though nothing seems to happen, the PC reboots as normal into XP.

I've entered the correct mac address and the machine is definitely capable of netbooting.

Our network is spread across 2 sites with separate subnets, I've setup dhcp options 66 and 67 and I can manually boot to the net boot environments successfully, it's only when I try to run a boot action that I have problems. Does rebooting via vnc or remote desktop make any difference?

 

Also is there anywhere I can view logs of what's going on as the client reboots?

 

Thanks, Kev

Hang on, do I need to set net boot as the first boot option on the PC? Do i have to do thaqt for every PC on my network?
