    Pxe Rep - exclude mac addresses

    Rookie

       

      Anybody know of a way to get pxe reps to not respond to certain mac addresses?  We have wyse terminals that have pxe enabled with no easy way to disable them, which when we turn the pxe reps on, each of the terminals come into the management console every time they boot up.  This is more of a nuisance, but would be nice if we could get around it before sending the pxe reps out to all of the 130 locations we have.

          C:\denied.txt or c:\allowed.txt, one per line, see manual for correct format.

              Did creating the denied.txt file work?

               

              1. Create a text file on the PXE Representative called DENIED.TXT at the root of C:\

              2. Place MAC addresses (without dashes) in DENIED.TXT, one MAC address per line

              3. Machines whose MAC addresses are listed in DENIED.TXT will not receive PXE replies to their requests;

                Hello chad,

                 

                see link in last post:

                How to configure a PXE Representative to only respond to certian machines.

                 

                1. Create a text file on the PXE Representative called ALLOWED.TXT at the root of C:\

                2. Place MAC addresses (without dashes) in ALLOWED.TXT, one MAC address per line

                3. Machines whose MAC addresses are listed in ALLOWED.TXT will receive

                PXE replies to their requests; MAC addresses not in ALLOWED.TXT will not receive PXE replies and therefore will not boot.

                 

                Note:

                The ability to configure a DENIED.TXT was added after LDMS 8.7sp3 in patch OSD-10299087.3. To configure a DENIED.TXT, follow the same instructions above (place it at the root of C: and one mac address per line). If a DENIED.TXT and an ALLOWED.TXT are both at the root of C:, then the ALLOWED.TXT will be used and the DENIED.TXT will be ignored.
