When I PXE-boot my Dell PowerEdge SC1425 with SATA-RAID system the system does get valid address from my DHCP server then indicates: Auto-Select: Acronis Loader BOOT SERVER IP: 0.0.0.0 PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout TFTP..... The system will not boot the Acronis Loader to get the Acronis Master Image Creator or the Acronis Snap Deploy Agent that are installed at my PXE Server. The PXE server log shows no activity. The Management Console shows no hosts available in the "Deployment" tab. When I boot from the Acronis boot CD created from the Management Console, the Snap Deploy agent starts, shows the Connecting to Management Server window, then goes to a blank window with just the Acronis watermark in the lower right and a working mouse. The PXE server log shows no activity. The Management Console shows no hosts available in the "Deployment" tab. The server is an eval license that shows status: C:\Program Files\Acronis\LicenseServer>licenseservercmdline --status tinytot Acronis Snap Deploy Trial -- 5/5 available The server host (windows 2000 pro) has no firewall and is otherwise accessible, as suggeted by the PXE boot's Acronis reference (how else would it know what is available). What shall I do to force an agent-server connection?
