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/
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.
