We have a K2200 running 3.3. I am having problems getting our DHCP scope updated to include the TFTP options. In the meantime while waiting on the admins for that, I was hoping I could test things out so I downloaded the USB bootable drive. Created the disk and booted a laptop from it. Then to my suprise it died saying cannot find TFTP server.

What is the point of the usb stick if you still need dhcp and tftp server put in there? I would think there is a way to input the IP of the KACE on the fly or it would be hard coded in the USB stick since it is in fact downloaded from the KACE server???

What am I missing? (Other than my tftp settings in the dhcp response ;) )

Thanks!

The "point" of the USB stick method is to PXE boot on machines that cannot PXE boot.

The point was we did not have the DHCP server setup. SO I was trying to do a image by telling the boot where it was. Would be nice if the usb stick boot did not find a TFTP setting in DHCP you could just manually input the IP of the KACE and then on you go...

Another Nice to have. The other problem is, we have VOIP phones on the same LAN as the PCs we want to image. So tricky getting the tftp settings to work for both devices, not sure if we can..
