Booting to Wrong Site
Recently I started to run into a really weird issue. Some computers at one of my remote sites are randomly booting the my main K2000 box and not the sites RSA. DHCP is definitely set right and the issue seems completely random some computers will PXE boot just fine to the RSA some will got the main K2000 box (which is offsite). Has anyone ever ran into this?

I can foresee 2 things that may cause this problem.
1. DHCP options not set correctly.
-check your DHCP server by RDP. I found that using the rsat then adding the server for my remote site showed different options than when i used RDP and checked locally the DHCP options.
2. DHCP server responding isn't the one on site
-It could be that your DHCP server at the remote site that points to the RSA is busy when the boot occurs and a different DHCP server responds, thus pointing to a different RSA or the main appliance. the solution to this depends on how you assign ip addresses and how separate your DHCP servers are. if rebooting the computer then points to the RSA, it will probably be this issue.
