Adding PXE support in ConfigMgr 2012 failed

Last week I setup a new ConfigMgr 2012 infrastructure. Everything works just fine, until I added PXE support to my distribution point. After I checked the “Enable PXE support for clients” box, the SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER process started the installation of all the components needed for PXE support.

  • The vcredist are being installed
  • The WDS Server rol gets installed
  • PXE Provider is initialized
  • The WDS Service gets started and configured

A couple of minutes later, some errors are in the logfile DISTMGR.log. After I rebooted the ConfigMgr server, the following error message displayed:
“There is a file of folder on your computer called “C:\progam” which could cause certain applications to not function correctly. Renaming it to “C:\program2″ would solve this problem. Would you like to rename it now?”

Let’s navigate to the C:\ drive, and there is the file. Renaming the file to C:\program_old and rebooted the server again, everything works fine and the WDS service is starting correctly now. Also the logfile DISTMGR.log is fine now. It looks like a bug within ConfigMgr 2012, but I didn’t figured it out yet…
