After running some updates, when trying to PXE boot clients the following errors are displayed:

PXE-E77: Bad or missing discovery server list.
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM

Further investigation of the Altiris Logs shoed that the RPC.ini file is missing.


Deployment Solution 7.1


For unknown reasons, file(s) were deleted and not replaced. It appears this may have been caused by the update. This is being further investigated.


The resolution to this issue is to run the following MSI files. This should regenerate the missing files.



These can be found in the Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\Installs\Altiris\ folder.

Run the "repair" option if available, you may need to run the install. We have also seen cases where the first MSI fails with an error that a required script is missing. Running the MSI again worked.
