is it possible to configure WDS in such an environment???

WDS server IP 192.168.1.XX

most of workstation are in 192.168.29.XX, 30.XX, 31.XX, 32.XX, 33.XX networks

thanks in advance


Answer found on technet:

Predefined Option 43 - 010400000000FF
Custom-made Option 60 - String - PXEClient
Predefined Option 66 - IP or Hostname of the WDS Server (in our case
Predefined Option 67 - boot\x86\wdsnbp.com
I did some more research and actually did a deployment following these steps in a production environment.

One more thing to keep an eye on are open ports that need to be open to the WDS server:
UDP - 67, 68, 69, 4011
TCP - 135, 137, 138, 139, 5040
