Question
What is the supported number of remote PXE Servers that can be managed by a single PXE Manager in Deployment Solution 6.9?

Answer
The PXE Manager is capable of managing up to 15 remote PXE servers.  As the number of remote PXE servers increases beyond this limit, the likelihood of failure will increase regardless of the PXE Manager's configuration. Consequently, Symantec will provide only best-effort support for configurations that exceed this limit. No further development is planned for the PXE implementation in Deployment Solution 6.9.

The PXE Server Management protocol was redesigned for Deployment Solution 7.1 to overcome this scalability limitation, and is now called Symantec Boot Services.
