I have 3 Dell XC730 shipped with AHV OS, I powered up and try to discover with Foundation-offline java applet. I have DHCP setup in the same LAN as my appliance.
after all 3 booted, from my DHCP server I can see there are 5 devices has assigned with IP expect 1 of the host's CVM.

from my DHCP I can see there is a lot of bad address assigned.
i'm thinking to re-image the OS. just wonder if it is advisable.
