The WDS server may not start, and an error is logged in the System log when you start the WDS server

After you have installed DHCP server you should have changed WDS Server so that it no longer listens on port 67 which is the default port DHCP listens on. Normally you would not install DHCP on the same server where WDS server is located but this is SMB country where we have most of the time only one server.

Your event log will be flooded with this error.

The WDS server may not start, and an error is logged in the System log when you start the WDS server

The fix is easy. On the server open an elevated command prompt and run wdsutil /set-Server /UseDhcpPorts:No.
