Mississauga, ON (PRWEB) May 11, 2004
emBoot Inc. today announced new client and server functionality which addresses a growing network management problem. As more and more desktop management software vendors are incorporating support for PXE (Pre-eXecution Environment) within their software offerings, it is quite common for such software to include its own PXE server. When more than one client management product is deployed, several PXE servers can thus be active on the same network, causing potential havoc to PXE clients.
ÂThe original PXE specification does not define a clientÂs behavior when it receives replies from multiple PXE servers, said emBoot founder George Kostiuk. ÂAlthough there is some prioritization defined, it is not deterministic.Â It is desirable to have a method to control which PXE server a client will boot from in a multiple PXE server environment. In order to implement such functionality, emBoot extended the PXE protocol from both server side and client side.
PXESDS is available immediately, with prices starting at $179. A trial version is available for evaluation.
