• Hello All,

    Need some help with this. I appreciate any help.

    So here is the run down…

    My company is about 200 users give or take. My IT team is about 9 people. We have 1 system admin and two help desk analyst. ( If you guessed right then I am one of those help desk analyst )(P.S. Only been here for 6 months)

    Anyways getting to the point. We hire people from all over the country to do Remote Data Entry. We give our employees Dell Wyse 5070’s. Currently our main method of imaging them is a USB Boot. Which takes forever when you have to get 5 thin clients ready to ship out on the same day. I have asked why they don’t set up a PXE server on the network. There response was “We disable SMB for security reasons” or something like that. So I figure I can set up a isolated PXE server and image through there. Did some research on reddit and got some info on FOG. After reading and pulling my hair out. I got my server running. So here comes the fun part.

    I am running Ubuntu Desktop 20.04. From what I read I needed to connect to the internet in order to get the program install and then change the IP address. So I installed it and did some test on our network to make sure it was working correctly. Then moved it locally.

    I captured an image of a thin client that was ready for deployment. So after I pushed the image in to a different thin client it was exactly the same. Which I wanted but I notice that the internet was limited connected. So CMD, and found out the Thin Clint also inherited the IP Address from the other thin client. Check the original one and now that thin client is doing the same thing. Not to sure if it is DHCP problem when I cloned it.

    Anybody run into this problem?

    I think you need to explain this part in more depth. Probably best if you can post some pictures so we know what you mean by “limited connected”, “inherited the IP Address”, “doing the same thing”.
