WDS PXE Server

Updated: December 3, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) server is used by Windows Deployment Services to provide network boot programs to client computers. PXE technology is a standard created by Intel that establishes a common and consistent set of pre-boot services within the boot firmware. The end goal is to enable a client to perform a network boot and receive a network boot program (NBP) from a network boot server.

Aspects

The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

Configuration Settings Updates

The Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) server is used by Windows Deployment Services to provide network boot programs to client computers. The PXE server obtains configuration settings from the registry at startup time.

PXE Provider Support

The Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) server is used by Windows Deployment Services to provide network boot programs to client computers. The PXE server receives and responds to PXE requests, and the providers contain the business logic that determines how and when the requests are answered. The PXE provider included with Windows Deployment Services is named Binlsvc.dll.

Rogue Detection

Windows Deployment Services requires interaction with Active Directory Domain Services for several critical functions. One of these functions is rogue detection, which determines whether the Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) server is authorized to provide services in the domain. Rogue detection is also known as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) authorization.
