RE: [K12OSN] boot failure update



The clients are running on identical hardware.

I think what is going on is our building recently became DHCP and fro some reason these two ltsp clients are picking up the campus DHCP broadcast and it is interfering.

Are all your thin clients running on identical hardware?  If not,  could be an issue with the PXE boot ROM.  I have seen similar behavior with the SIS 9000 boot ROM.

Bad switch or wiring maybe?  If nothing changed on the server (no updates or anything), then I'd have to suspect hardware.
