NBPs are specific to both the architecture and firmware of the client.
You specify the default NBP for each architecture on the Boot tab of the server’s properties (right-click the server in the MMC snap-in, and click Properties).
You can also override the default NBP on a per-client basis by running WDSUTIL /Set-Device /Device:.
For example, you may want to configure an NBP so that prestaged (or known) clients receive the default NBP (most commonly a NBP that requires users to press F12) and unknown clients receive a NBP that will cause them to perform a network boot automatically (without F12).
This topic only applies to the initial release of Windows Server 2008.
A network boot program (NBP) is the first file that is downloaded and executed as part of the network boot process and it controls the beginning of the boot experience (for example, whether or not the user must press F12 to initiate a network boot).
Users can proceed with the boot process by pressing either key, or they can exit the boot process by not pressing either key. In EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface), the choice of whether or not to perform a network boot is handled within the EFI shell, and not by the NBP. When the Auto-Add policy is enabled, this NBP is sent to pending computers to pause the network boot and report back the client computer's architecture to the server. Network boot referral cases (including use of Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) options 66 and 67) You can update the routing tables for your networking equipment to make sure that DHCP traffic is directed correctly.
An NBP developed for Windows Deployment Services that serves the following general purposes: 1. For example, you can use the ip helper-address command if you have a Cisco router.
I have run into the following errors and were able to overcome them. The routing table stores information about IP networks and how they can be reached (either directly or indirectly).Because all IP nodes perform some form of IP routing, routing tables are not exclusive to IP routers.For host routes, the network ID is the IP address of the specified host and the network mask is 255.255.255.255.The end result of the route determination process is the choice of a single route in the routing table.
