Imaging Job doesn't start after PXE Boot

Created: 05 Oct 2012 | 3 comments

Thanks for helping all. After I send an imaging job to a machine it will boot into PXE but doesn't appear to get the job sent. It will just keep flashing:

Altiris pre-select automation processing

UD 10.145.16.40

Altiris in x86pc preboot PXE 2.x

Build ID=402

I've had this before at one of my other sites and just regerated PXE config on the site server and it worked as normal. This time however I still get the same thing. Any ideas please? Using 7.1.

 

Thank you!

Is it only one site? Does it happen to all PCs on that site?

If so just uninstall the Altiris agent and reinstall it and all site services. Move the package and image files and move them back after reinstalling the Site Server if you don't want to download them again

It happened at one of my other sites yes. But like I explained, all I had to do was regenerate the PXE config on that site only and everything was good. Any other ideas other than reinstalling the entire site server services?

What I meant was, is it only affecting one site right now? And is it affecting all PCs on that site?

I'm afraid I don't have any ideas apart from reinstalling the Site Server, as it's quite easy I usually don't spend too much time fault finding otherwise.
