    This is my first time im putting RIS on a member server and i got all my services working (DNS, DHCP etc) created my images and all and everything passed the test during the installation. DHCP is working and gives IP to my clients that already have XP running.

    BUT im trying to install a new client using RIS and the new blank machine wont get an IP.

    Domain Controller runs: DNS and DHCP
    Member Server : RIS

    These use static IPs. Im using VMWare too. :oops: Now is the problem VMWare or do i need to do something on my member server as the RIS and DHCP are on different servers? Or is it vmware playing tricks? :oops:

    Edit: I just install DHCP on the RIS server and it works BUT i dont want it to work like that i want only RIS to run on my member server and DHCP on another... there must be a way.. Thanks for the help in advance!

    There must be a way, I’ve installed a member server running RIS and a SBS was the main server, DHCP was running on SBS. Will have a look later to see how it is set up 8)

    Does this help?

    well, by defining those options, the dhcp server tells the pxe client where to find the ris server. i'll try to find some docs.

    nah, look at technet. kb hasn't got much. there's this, but it doesn't say how to define them.
    by the way, these dhcp options are really only important in a routed environment. if you have everything in the same subnet, then all this is irrelevant.

    forget option 60 for the moment, and try this:

    option 66: ip address of ris server
    option 67: oschooser\i386\startrom.com

    you see i knew something wasnt right both server are in the range 192.168.1.0/24 but without the DHCP service running on the RIS server (member server) it doesnt work! :blink and i thought i would re-pharse something i got a router between me and my ADSL modem - but im working with VMWare so i dont think it brings that into play...

    open dhcp snapin, select server, select scope, select scope options, right click, select configure options.

    but if both servers and the client are on the same subnet, this is not necessary. vmware should not be a hindering factor.

    no, ris and dhcp do not have to be on the same server. (but you must authorize the ris server as if it were a dhcp server. :biggrin ).

    i understand the problem, zimbo. i'm just telling you that it is possible, as a matter of fact, i'm looking at such a setup right now, but i don't know why it's not working for you. have you tried the dhcp options, even though it shouldn't be required?

    that is the value. you should have an oschooser folder, plus subsequent subfolders, on your ris server.
