Can the K2000 PXE boot using IP Helper statements only (no DHCP scope options)?
A Dell engineer stated in this post 4 years ago that the only way to PXE boot with Kace is by setting the DHCP 66 & 67 scope options. Is this still true? If so, why is that? We've used Altiris and SCCM and neither of those required scope options to be set for PXE booting, they worked fine with only IP Helper statements.
Has anyone gotten PXE to work with the K2000 without the DHCP options?

When we originally setup the K2000 we used DHCP options 66 and 67 to point to the K2000.
Since the K2000 does not support UEFI PXE booting and I got tired of needing to use the USB stick method I setup a WDS server with the K2000 boot.wim file and then PXE boot to the WDS server which then transfers you over to the K2000.
When setting up the WDS server I removed the DHCP options 66 and 67 and I am only using IP helper addresses that point to WDS. Doesn't entirely answer your question although I would think you could PXE boot to the K2000 with only IP helper addresses. I would seriously consider setting up an environment like I mentioned as a lot of newer computers support UEFI now.
