I would like to ask for an expert’s idea on this one. I am running a standalone WDS Server in Windows Server 2016. At the same time, I am running DHCP for WDS but I also have pSense which also has DHCP running. You might ask why have two DHCP servers running in the same network, I initially wanted WDS clients to get an IP from DHCP but I don’t know how. So this would be a two-part question:
Whenever I create a reservation for a MAC Address, I get an error that the IP is used by another device. I have tried disabling DHCP in pfsense, and/or setting the Windows Server DHCP Scope to include and not include the IP Address but still get the same problem.
How do I make Windows Server’s WDS server to deploy IPs from pFsense.
The options listed are to setup PXE booting from pfSense rather than the WDS server. There’s some special considerations for setting up DHCP on the same server the WDS server is on. Microsoft’s Technet on WDS for 2012+ should have that outlined if you still want to go that route
