Windows Deployment Services Doesn't Survive Reboot

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have a Windows 2008 R2 server with all the latest updates that acts as a Domain Controller, and it also has the Windows Deployment Services service on it. DHCP is handled by a separate router. Whenever this server is rebooted, say after security patches, WDS does not come back up. The service is currently set to Automatic - Delayed Start, because at first I was hoping that maybe it was just trying to start up too soon. But that has not helped. When I RDP to the server or connect to it via RSAT, I am able to start the WDS service by hand just fine. But I don't want to have to restart it man (HowTos)
