Problem with RIS on Windows Server 2003 x64

  1. Hi.

    I have run into some trouble setting up RIS on my newly installed x64
    server. The problems only occurs on Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition.

    The first problem is that my clients doesn't find the RIS server if I don't
    set option 66 and 67 in my DHCP. The error reported from PXE is PXE-E53: No
    boot filename received. Using a x32 server works without setting these

    The second problem is more critical. When trying to install using a
    precreated AD computer account the RIS server shows the wrong GUID during RIS
    setup. When PXE-booting the client I see the correct GUID. But on the summary
    page during RIS setup (install.osc), I see a GUID created from the MAC
    followed by 0:s. And since this is the wrong GUID compared to AD a new
    computer account is created instead of using the existing one i AD. The
    server is a memberserver with WSUS on it. The client OS is Windows XP Pro SP2

    Have anybody else run into these problems?

    Best regards
