WDS fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running SCCM 2007 on VMWare 7.  I am trying to deploy an image using OSD. But when I try boot my target machine, I get the message that it is waiting for approval from the WDS server.

    My setup is as follows: 

    All of the systems are running on VMWare 7.
    DC -      Windows 2003 SP2 (64Bit)
    SQL -     Windows 2003 SP2 (64Bit)
    SCCM -    Windows 2003 SP2 (64Bit)
    Client -  Windows X P SP3, and Windows 7 (SCCM captured images) - .wim files

    Under Admin tools, when I launch WDS and click on "Pending Devices" I get "The remove procedure call failed" message.  In the eventvwr, I get a generic message that the service terminated unexpectedly. 

    Event ID: 7031
    Category: None
    Source: Service Control Manager

    Under "ConfigMgr Service Manager > Components > SMS_PXE_Service_Point" I am able to query "SMS_PXE_Service_Point" component, and it starts fine.

    I've tried to uninstall and re-install WDS, but that makes matters worse.  There is no indication of PXE at all.  The target machine just says, "OS not found".

    HELP!!!!  I am so CLOSE.
