PXE boot – No of devices


Hi Techs,

Please help me with the below situation.

One of our local IT has more machines which need to be re-imaged through SCCM. the build is fine up to 4 devices, when he tries to boot the 5th device it’s not getting an IP address.

the Local DP is Physical, How many devices we can build at a time?

    Thanks to everyone, the Issue was resolved by extending the DHCP IP range.


    Check the DHCP scope that is serving up IP addresses for your imaging environment. Maybe you only have a small IP range defined/limiting IPaddress assignment.

    I once was imaging a large amount of PCs and even with a suitable ip range I ran out of addresses bc my leases didn’t expire.
