@wmw509 Disabling CSM makes sense. I’ve seen a lot of bioses that if CSM is enabled it only lets you use the legacy/bios pxe boot. I’ve had that disabled on all my hardware for so long I forgot it was a thing.
@Wayne-Workman I do not know. Pinging directly may be a better option, but I would not recommend it. ICMP is not really a good mechanism to test up/down state. This is because ICMP knows nothing about the host, nor does it really care. Remember, we aren’t directly tracking the IP of a host any more, and this is for good reason in my eyes. Basically, the current mechanism knows what host is what because it translates the Hostname to its corresponding IP address. If you want to just know if a host is “pingable” then you should probably add the Host IP field back and enter the corresponding host’s IP address. This way, even if the host is currently rebooting, it will respond if the network is up and running.
