Imaging problems Coexisting with ZFD 7 PXE imaging server

We have a ZFD 7 that we are using for all of the Zen services (Policies, Apps, Imaging ect..) We installed a new ZCM 11 server on the same subnet as our ZFD 7 server in hopes to start using the PXE boot method for imaging. We have always used the BootCD method for imaging and now we are getting PC's that have new Windows 7 and the e1000e card.

When we boot the new PC's (lenova M91p) they do not pickup the new ZCM 11 server. They never get a IP Address. I boot a VM that has Winxp and the E1000 Nic and it gets a IP address but exits.The DHCP server is a separate Windows DHCP server on that same subnet.

I have installed the latest Patches and Image updates on both our servers. I even added the "e1000e" to the z_auto.cfg and z_maint.cfg files on the ZCM 11 server and rebooted the server. I added the ZFD 7 server ip address to the Referral Lists and copied the ZCM 11 image files to the ZFD 7 server.

I am at a loss to what might be the problem. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in Advance.
:confused:

Thanks, pmj

Hi

Just to be sure; Do your new workstations not even get a IP address from your dhcp? (NOT Proxy dhcp)

Re: Imaging problems Coexisting with ZFD 7 PXE imaging serve

The new PCs do get an IP address when they boot Windows. They don't get a IP addrress when we use a Imaging BootCD or PXE. The Bios is set to boot the Network First. We have other PC's that get IP addresses but they pickup the ZFD 7 Proxy DHCP not the ZCM Proxy DHCP.
