PXE Everywhere provides the ability to deploy a new OS to bare metal machines residing on a branch. It supports both BIOS and UEFI. Using PXE Everywhere removes the overhead of supporting dedicated PXE servers on branch networks. This version of PXE Everywhere is for use with Configuration Manager only.

It solves problems in key areas of rolling out OS images to bare metal machines:

  • PXE Everywhere now provides the most scalable solution available for PXE-booting bare metal machines on branch networks. The PXE Everywhere Local Host gets installed to all suitable clients on the branch and for each PXE boot request the local hosts then elect among themselves the machine most suitable to handle the request. This enables bare metal machines to boot using PXE without the need for a specifically configured local WDS server. PXE Everywhere load balances between the PXE boot requests across all the PXE Everywhere Local Hosts, thereby maximizing scalability.
  • Integrates with ConfigMgr to apply OS images to PXE-booting bare metal machines.
  • In conjunction with Nomad, PXE Everywhere helps minimize WAN usage by ensuring that locally cached Packages are used wherever possible when deploying an OS image.

PXE Everywhere 3.1.300 works in conjunction with Nomad 6.2 and later.
