Hi,

I wanna setup an PXE Server in ym Network. In my network is allready a DHCP Server running and i dont wanna turn it off.
So now i want to ask you, if it is possible to use the existing DHCP Server in the network and dont install one on the PXE Server.

Thank You !

PXE does not come with a dedicated boot protocol. It is simply DHCP packets extended with additional DHCP options. It's formerly known as the bootstrap protocol. ... It will only respond if it gets a DHCP offer including option 60 which means: I am PXE capable and able to send out boot server and boot file information.
