DHCP issues after imaging PCs
Posted on 2011-03-07
Windows Server 2003, GhostCast Server 11, Windows XP
We recently ghosted about 100 new computers with an image we have been using for about a year without an issue. However, with these new computers they are showing up in our DHCP server with blank names. The wierd thing is that after ghosting them they were changed to static IPs, but they are still showing up on DHCP server as leased even though you cannot ping that address. If I delete them they just come right back. I tracked the PCs down by the MAC and checked the bios setup and don't see anything different, wake on lan(off) or anything. It's like the DHCP server cached the leased address during the ghost process and won't let them go. Any ideas?
