  • Bug with PXE booting pre-staged machines for deployment returns event 519

    Posted on September 24th, 2010 By Andreas Stenhall + No comments

    There is a bug in Windows Deployment Services (WDS) in Windows Server 2008 R2 which prevents your pre-staged computers from booting via PXE. In the Event logs on the WDS server you can find event 519 stating that there are duplicate machines with the same GUID or MAC address, even though this is not true. There is a hotfix for this problem which is available from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028840/en-us.

    The event looks like:

    Log Name: Application
    Source: BINLSVC
    Date: 2010-09-24 10:29:04
    Event ID: 519
    Task Category: BINLSVC
    Level: Error
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: wds1.contoso.local
    Description:
    Multiple machine accounts with the same GUID or MAC address were found in Active Directory Domain Services. The Windows Deployment Services server will use the first listed machine account.

    MAC Address: {00000000-0000-0000-0000-00155D00C837}
    GUID: {94651BB8-ED84-42C6-947A-218A66EE5A6C}
