TFTP & PXE & Winpe - other options?
Hi all, we are using DS6.9 sp4 and Opentftpserver. Since going from Dos boot images to winpe we find that that the boot image oftens fails to download. It starts downloading white progress bar at the bottom of screen and then stops with boot image error.
This happens randomly but the busier the network (ie time of day) the more frequent it fails.
We changed from the Altiris tftp server to opentftpserver as when we imaged multiple computers the boot image download time increased with each connected computer.
As we are an education environment and are frequently imaging computers this is becoming non workable with the failing boot download.
Can anyone offer another solution - does DS7.1 handle this better?
My networks guys just keep saying TFTP is hopeless and drops packets randomly - I am not a networks person but do look after the configuration of our altiris server.
Any suggestions appreciated.
