PXE gets correct IP but Clonezilla image does not

    I have searched but found no results for my situation. The PXE boot gets the correct IP from the DRBL DHCP server and downloads the clonezilla image. At some point during the process of loading the image the IP is requested again but the Windows server offers an IP, the client refuses it because it isn't named drbl and then fails after a few attempts. Is there a way to make the client use the same IP it got from the PXE boot, or try the attempt more times? If the client and drbl server are connected to the same downstream switch, there are no issues. Probably because the DRBL is responding faster than the Windows DHCP server.

    So does that work for you? Or you still have problem with that?

    It sort of works. Sometimes it works and others I have to restart the source a few times. Last time I restarted the source several times and then restarted the drbl server and then it worked. It would be nice if the IP was retained from the PXE boot.

    Maybe this is related to Linux kernel/hardware support issue. You can try to upgrade the linux kernel to see if any difference, or try to use DRBL live to test that.
