RE: Generate random numbers on ipxe shell??
Well, thanks for your advice. But, there is no need to fix the network. There are reasons why we have multiple DHCP servers running. Changing the entire network infrastructure for a service isnt a clever option. Adding the option of generating random numbers would solve the issue. I hope its added in the future. Problem solved.

In that case, your network is fundamentally broken. There is no such thing as the "wrong" DHCP server: if you have multiple DHCP servers on a network segment then they must all be offering the same configuration (unless they are constrained to respond only to specific known clients).

Fix your network, and the problem will go away.
