Setting IP adresses after mass deployment
Let’s say I want to deploy 50 clients with Windows XP.
Host names should be C01 - C50, IP addresses should be fixed 10.0.0.1 - 10.0.0.50.
How do I set the IPs? Is that even possible with FOG?
Yes, I am aware XP it’s not supported by MS anymore. We still need to use it.
Sorry if that’s been asked before… I couldn’t find anything using the forum search.
It’s a 2008 R2 DHCP server.
Joe’s suggestion is a great idea. I’ll try that!
Following on with Joe’s suggestion for dhcp reservations. If you have a Windows 2012 DHCP server then this article may help: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/teamdhcp/2012/11/20/bulk-load-dhcp-reservations-using-dhcp-powershell/
@ernie Is something stopping from giving those hosts static IPs on your DHCP server? You already have their mac addresses via the FOG server. Really that is the better approach here.
OK, too bad it can’t be done by the FOG client… I am not exactly a script kid…
thanks for pointing me into the right direction.
I suppose you could craft a powershell script that would use the hostname to conconstruct an ip and then set it. This could be deployed as a snapin. You would probably need fog trunk and the new client to deploy powershell snapins.
Or, if the hosts get bound to a domain you could use group policy to deploy a powershell script.
