Client PC names - princekham - 2016-10-29 15:52

I would like yo know how to give clients pc names when they are booted from iscsi server.

And i would like to know a good tutorial on booting frome iscsi target. I would like to set up a gaming pcs booted from iscsi server.

I tried with Tiny pxe and iscsi target software on server 2008 with an window image from ccboot - i changed the image from dynamic to fixed using hyper v and with tiny pxe, i was able to boot but all the client pcs got the same name and it is not ok. And I think there should be a better way in which i don't need my image file to be fixed type. Please let me know how. Thank you in advance.

For setting windows hostnames you need to set them inside of windows and then reboot, the official suggestion is probably to use autounattend.xml together with sysprep. But i know that clonezilla has some hacks regarding to this, but AFAIK there is no official way to set a windows hostname from boot options or network options. (other then randomizing the later part)
