Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1


Workstations booting into PXE menu take upwards of 1 minute holding the CTRL + ALT key before menu is displayed.


Turn off the proxydhcp service on servers that will conflict with the desired ZCM PXE server.

Remove unnecessary bootp options from the DHCP server.  Additional options in DHCP are only required if the ZENworks Proxy DHCP service is running on the DHCP server.

Additional Information

Found that an additional ZCM server was running a pre SP1 version of the proxydhcp service, and other PXE services on the network.  And although the workstation showed that it was connecting to the correct server, the time to display the menu is adversely effected.
