No response from Windows Deployment Services server

When PXE building a machine with SCCM 1602, the machine did not get a response from WDS. It had the error “No response from Windows Deployment Services server“.

When checking smspxe.log there were no errors and even showed the MAC address of the client communicating with the PXE point/WDS.

After troubleshooting, the easiest fix was to simply restart the Windows Deployment Services service and watch the service start successfully by examing the smspxe.log

Once restarted the client could PXE boot fine.
