UEFI and PXE Boot settings for DHCP - UEFI boot works....PXE does not

We upgraded to K2v4.

I followed the instructions in this video: K2000 Native UEFI PXE Network Booting (https://support.quest.com/k2000-systems-deployment-appliance/videos)

Which made me change our old PXE boot filename from "k2000.0" to "undionly.kpxe", since this change only UEFI PXE boot works, our old PXE systems get an error during DHCP saying the "no boot file name received".

So now I ask, does that PXE boot file need to be changed? If not, then the video needs to be corrected. The video says it is for v4.

Edit: since I posted this I did change the boot file back to K2000.0 and it still fails

  • Can you tell me how I determine what our current PXE boot file name is? We're currently running K2000 version 4.1.182. - Redden71 3 years ago

For version 4.0, undionly.kpxe is correct for the bootfile name to pxe boot bios systems using iPXE.  However, using k2000.0 will also work, but it uses pxelinux and is slower.

What server are you using?

Because it isn't working, this leads me to believe that the policy is incorrect (or misspelled), it must match identically to

Screenshots of your config would be helpful too.

  • Ok, after watching that video for the 4th time, I paid attention to the little orange balloons stating "not all environments support all CAPS". So you were correct....I had ARCH all caps in my config. After corrected that (I had to recreate the vendor class as it wouldn't let me edit). My PXE boot is alive once again!!! - DMel 4 years ago
