Today I had a very strange PXE error at a customer site. Recently I installed I fresh SCCM 2007 environment and we are now in the process of configuring this environment. Today we started with configuring PXE. At the Customer site they use a Linux DHCP server serving the clients. At the DHCP server we made the following exclusion:
After we started the client we run into the following error:
PXE-T04: Access violation.
PXE-E36: Error received from TFTP server
After getting this error we connected from a other client station to the SCCM Server via TFTP and tried to download wdsnbp.com file. At this client we got also the same error. When we replaced the “/” with “” it works from the client site. But when booting from PXE the error still comes. I searched on the Internet and was pointed in the right direction. I changed the following Register Key/Value on the SCCM Server:
As final step I restarted the WDS Server service and the problem was Solved. So the problem was the way Linux is slashing file paths. I hope that this information helps people to solve this kind of problems. The article which pointed me in the right direction can be found here.
