Create in DHCP server option 060 for PXE


When you create a WDS server out of your DHCP server the server option 60 in dhcp for PXE do not exists. To make it do the following steps:


Open a command prompt with elevated privileges and writte:

NETHSH>server \\NameOfDHCPServer
NETHSH>add optiondef 60 PXEClient String 0 comment=”Option added for PXE Support”
NETHSH>set optionvalue 60 STRING PXEClient
NETHSH>show optionvalue all

next step in my case is add 066 option to say whicc is the WDS server.

I hope it help you!



WDS not want to start after configure PXE Service on SCCM 2012 DP

Hi friends,

Yesterday in a SCCM 2012 infrastructure project that I´m participating, I was configuring the PXE Service on a new Distribution Point MS Server 2008. Well, after configure the PXE Service from the SCCM admin console, the WDS role not want to start. The problem was that need the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable – x64 9.0.30729.4148 (vcredist_x64) to work.


Here i put the link to the MS kb.
