Using WDS to deploy Windows XP images across subnets

Scenario: I have desktop systems on LAN Subnet A. My servers,
including my WDS server, is on LAN Subnet B. The servers are all
Windows 2003 R2 (fully patched). The desktops are all Windows XP
Professional with SP2.

Just a couple of questions about using WDS to clone XP images:

1) What do I need to configure on my Windows 2K3 R2 DHCP server, in
order to direct PXE clients on Subnet A, to properly point to the WDS
server on Subnet B?

2) Is there a comprehensive step-by-step set of instructions for how to
configured WDS and then how to prep a Windows XP Professional system for
image capturing?

Re: Using WDS to deploy Windows XP images across subnets

You need to configure an IP Helper address on the router to forward the
broadcasts.
Deployment is a huge topic:

Re: Using WDS to deploy Windows XP images across subnets

I already have the ip forwarding happening on the router, so that DHCP
requests from Subnet A can reach Subnet B. Do I need to add the custom
DHCP scope options to the DHCP server so that PXE clients on Subnet A
get pointed to the WDS server?

Re: Using WDS to deploy Windows XP images across subnets

AFAIK, you will need to set up two IP helper addresses, one for the DHCP and
one for WDS. As an alternative you can forward to the broadcast address.
You will also need to forward port 4011.
These may help:
