WDS not working : server 2012R2



WDS not working for me, I get as far as getting IP address from the DHCP server and then PXE-E11 ARP Timeout

I have been able to confirm DHCP scope is serving address to the PXE client. Option 60,66 and 67 configured.

I have confirmed TFTP is working from WDS server as I can 'GET' a file from \Boot\x64\Images\...

This shows in Event viewer as successful

Any help appreciated.


Test TFTP connection request produces Timeout

[WDSServer/WDSTFTP] TFTPParse[Request]: OpCode=1, File=\\WDSCORPMDT\DeploymentShare$\Boot\test.txt, Mode=1, BlkSize=512, WinSize=1, Timeout=2, TSize=0, MsftWindow=0

Successfully confirmed TFTP. see attached image for config

[WDSServer/WDSTFTP] TftpSession[0x0000002E92AF39C0:] - Initialized: Local=

[WDSServer/WDSTFTP] CTftpServer::GetFilePath: Local Path=[E:\RemoteInstall\Boot\x64\Images\test2.txt]

The timeout is set to 30 seconds as shown in the bcdedit output below, so this is not the timeout as seen in PXE error TFTP timeout
