We have around 20 RSA's around the globe all working well but there is one that just refuses to PXE boot.

The machine I am trying to boot from is on the same subnet as the RSA and the DHCP server. The DHCP scope has been set up with option 66 and 67 and everything looks normal.  Booting from a USB works fine but we'd rather avoid that if possible.

Here is the TFTP log:

Has anybody come across this?

    OK, an extremely helpful support representative resolved this for me. the issue was with DHCP Option 66 on the Cisco kit, when running this it saw the share as: \\ââ€â€Â¿Ã‹Â¾Y\peinst

    the solution was to bypass this by using a tool called the KBE manipulator, with this we created a new KBE with the IP address hard coded instead of using the DHCP options for the router.

    this allowed us to boot directly into the KBE with no issues.

    if anyone else encounters this issue it will require a support call but you can refer to this ticket number:

    TICK: 258561

    This however defeats the purpose... and refuse to go this route making KBEs for each remote site
