Using the Remote Installation Preparation wizard - Exercise

Setting up a RIS server

Objective: Set up an RIS server.

Scoring

This exercise is worth a total of 5 points. You will be presented with a troubleshooting scenario, but unlike Problem Solver exercises, you will not submit your response to a tutor. Instead, you will work offline. Click the OK I'm Done Button when you are finished to view the results.

The scenario

You are installing Windows 2000 Professional using the RIS client Startup disk. Everything seems to be going well until you see a message on the screen that indicates BootP has started, but no DHCP message response from the server has been obtained. The installation cannot proceed at this point.

Your task

Identify what problems could lead to this message and how you would go about fixing the problem.
