Issue/Introduction



Is there any known way to configure Windows Boot Servers to use HTTP to transport Boot Images to the client systems?

Environment

CA-Client Automation - All Version

Resolution

We currently don't support the Windows Boot Servers to use HTTP to transport Boot Images to their client systems.
We are still using the PXE method and we do not support iPXE method using HTTP (https://ipxe.org/howto/winpe)
