Systems Deployment Question
DHCP required for NetBoot?
Stupid question here I think....
The subnet that we have our Kace servers on does not have DHCP. We have NetBoot enabled on our K2000 and followed all the steps in the admin guide for deploying to Macs. On the test machine we are using, it is configured with a static IP address on the same subnet as the Kace server and can ping the k2000. However, it does not see the k2000 in System Preferences > Startup Disks.
Before we do any more troubleshooting... is DHCP required for NetBoot? Do I need to set up scope options similar to what I did for PXE booting?
BTW, our Macs are all on Mountain Lion and the k2000 is on 3.5.
Edit: I'm not a network administrator... but from what I understand, even with the client and server on the same subnet, the router has no idea what server to send bootp requests to unless you have a scope option telling it to send bootp requests to the Kace server. Is that right?
