OpenThinClient PXE Server and Windows Deployment Server (WDS) one network
Posted on 2014-12-16
I have a windows based network that uses Windows Deployment Server (WDS) to deploy windows images. We are in the process of updating our windows based thinclients to linux based openthinclient clients. Our DHCP server sits on the Windows Platform.
I need for the DHCP functions to continue as normal. I also need the WDS server to function as normal. I am trying to get the Windows DHCP server to redirect the Linux Thinclients to the Openthinclient server for booting and configuration.
I have created reservations in the Windows DHCP server for the MAC Addresses of the thin clients and modified the thinclients DHCP option 66 to point to the Openthinclient server. The WDS server (on its own seperate ip address) still shows up during PXE boots and the Openthinclient Server is not. The DHCP ipaddress that is assigned to the thinclients is correct so it must be functioning.
I am at a loss. I am sure it is a DHCP setting that I am missing but I cannot figure out which one.
I currently am defining DHCP options 066, 003, 006, 015, 044, and 046 on the thinclients.
Your help in this matter is appreciated.
