1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade serva -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade serva -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Screenshot of Serva

Serva is an Automated PXE Server Solution Accelerator
based on an all-in-one portable multi-server engine

  • HTTP server
  • FTP server
  • TFTP server
  • TFTP client
  • DHCP server
  • proxyDHCP server 1
  • BINL server 2
  • DNS server
  • SNTP server
  • SYSLOG server

    1. PXE DHCP service that does not require altering your current DHCP server.
    2. Microsoft WAIK/ADK independent RIS and WDS alternative.

Serva is a tiny (~1 Mb), yet powerful Microsoft Windows application. It was conceived mainly as an Automated PXE Server Solution Accelerator. It bundles on a single exe all of the underlying server protocols and services required by the most complex PXE network boot/install scenarios simultaneously delivering Windows and non-Windows resources.

It includes proxyDHCP and a WAIK (Windows Automated Install Kit) and ADK (Assessment and Deployment Kit) independent RIS and WDS server alternative.
Serva's application field also tackles the ultra-fast set-up of simple single-protocol solutions like i.e. HTTP or FTP server for file delivery.

The application does not require installation, It does not require Internet connection, it does not save keys on your Windows registry, and it can be used right away. Serva includes a very simple and comprehensive interface that will quickly guide you through all its settings.

Serva is a full C/C++ multi-threaded application that runs from Windows 2000 to Windows 10.
See what Serva can do for you by reading its Application Notes starting here.

Initially targeting the sysadmin in a hurry and the average IT enthusiast, Serva PXE/BINL was originally designed as the simple alternative to the server functionality of those fantastic pieces of software called Microsoft RIS and WDS. Today Serva PXE/BINL also includes advanced features like unattended installs, Windows PE booting, or single-menu multi-repository integration. Please read about these exiting new features here Serva PXE/BINL - AN02: Windows Install Adv and WinPE Boot.

This package installs Serva Community which is licensed for personal, non-commercial use only and has some limitations when using PXE/BINL services. For a full list of differences between Serva Community (this package) and Serva Pro, see the comparison chart.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
