Symantec Ghost 8.0 Console will not recognize DHCP client PC's
Posted on 2006-06-14
To any and all Ghost guru's out their in the IT world. Please help!!!!
I have a very strange situation with Symantec Ghost 8.0. We have a very basic small network with one of our servers supporting the Symantec Ghost Console. Our network uses DHCP but we do have some static IP addresses assigned. The Ghost client software is installed on DHCP and Static IP address PC's.
Now here comes the strange part. Only the PC's that have a static IP are showing up on the Ghost console. From what everyone is telling me this is the complete opposite of what should happen. Apparently Ghost promotes DHCP and all of the PC's should be viewable in the console.
I plan to use ghost as a primary inventory tool and as a way to distribute software throughout our network.
I would greatly appreciate any help with this problem.
