How to Install and Configure WDS server at Windows Server 2019 #Hyper-V #WDS #Windows Server 2019#PXE #Mvphour

If you would like to deploy OS to the New rack Server or PC but they have no DVD (virtual DVD), WDS (Windows Deployment Services) server is your good friend, you can easy to deployment via network (PXE).

Today, I am going to show you step by step to install and configure WDS server. you don’t need a new hardware for it, you can build WDS server as a VM of exiting Windows 10 laptop or Server.

  1. Assumed the host machine (it can be a Windows 10 laptop) is connecting to Corporate Network, so the WDS VM and testing VM will get the IP address from DHCP server. if it’s at your lab or pilot environment, you need to build your own DHCP server.
  2. Login to WDS2019 Server via local Administrator (WDS server can be a domain member server or WORKGROUP server)
  3. Use ping command to make sure the VM (WDS2019) can ping outside network.
