Re: [K12OSN] ltsp, subnets, dhcpd.conf

You can also specify the thin clients by the mac address in the

Just make sure that you DO NOT specify a range in the dhcpd.conf file
and you should be able to workaround having an authoritative DHCP server
as well as the DHCP server for LTSP on the same subnet.

Unless the other DHCP server also ties everything to a different set of specific mac addresses you'll have the problem that it may answer from a range before this one responds. You need to either run on a different port with a matching boot floppy, or have one dhcp server supply all the options (which won't hurt the machines that don't need them) or put the clients on a different subnet.
