looks like you have PXE configurations running via SCCM on the network you are trying to boot from.


I suggest moving away from PXE in PVS and use BDM or Boot ISO




Hi James,


Thanks for the response. Could it be due to non-availability of DHCP addresses also? As, we do not use SCCM. We have other desktops that boot from the production environment and they are fine. I am thinking it could be due to DHCP scope that has just 15 IPs available and all are full. I will have to expand the range which I have not tried. As, I have to ask the network guy to also open up the range. 


But, it should not have any effect if I move the vdisk and create the virtual desktops from the template which was in test environment, right?

You are getting an IP and WDS is responding.... Your dhcp scopes may have different scope options set, but you are definitely getting a WDS response and not PVS 


Hi James,


Thanks for the response. I think the issue was the PVS images were not on both the PVS servers, so when I booted it went to the server where the image was not there. That is why it was having a problem. But, now after copying it started working fine. Unfortunately,  I have hit with another issue (one after the other), where it is rebooting in a loop looking for updates or what am not sure.
