NetBoot image not being broadcast to Mac Device Collection

  • Parallels Mac Management


I have created a NBI file and converted it to a WIM file and created a task sequence and deployed the task sequence to a collection of Macs. The challenge is that the NetBoot image option is not appearing as a boot option on the target Macs.

The following errors persists in pma_netboot_service.log:

      01-29 11:16:51.372 I /pma_netboot_service:1952:f88/ Unable to fetch data (Unable to read DP NAL path. Check that account has enough rights.).
