Prompt for an IP when booting a custom KBE from USB?
I'm new to the KACE world and have just gotten our K2000 up and running. It's working out great, but we have a unique situation and wonder if anyone else has had this issue:
We are a 1500-2000 desktop organization at a university. As such we have around 5 VLAN/Subnets that our machines occupy. Due to legacy decisions and other reasons, we don't do DHCP and don't plan to implement it anytime soon. Since we've rolled out the K2000 we do use DHCP internally within IT's subnet for ease of use.
The problem, however, is how do we image a lab of machines that have already been installed, without going through the hassle of having our networking group move a room to a different VLAN? (this costs us money) I found the KBE manipulator tool, but to set a static IP means that we can only do one at a time, and we have to have at least one per VLAN.
What I'd like to do is have the KBE ask me at boot what IP it wants to use. Our netmasks, gateway, and such are all the same between VLANs. All I need to do is enter an IP address.
I've tried putting in some commands to prompt and then use netsh to set the IP via the custom DOS commands in the KBE manipulator, but the commands appear to run at the wrong time and don't happen interactively..or at least I can't get them to work in that way.
So, any guidance from the community would be great. I haven't contacted KACE support yet, and haven't even used my JumpStart training. Maybe this is something I'll need to pose to them :)
