K2000 & RSA - Not all images sent from RSA
We are running a test with 10 machines internally, where we are using a scripted installation to "remotely" re-image all of them simultaneously.
We have a RSA, which is sitting on top of our switch right here, which is configured to sync with K2000.
When we go to do the re-image, we are noticing strange behaviour... Out of the 10 machines, 9 of them are pulling the image from the RSA, but 1 (sometimes 2) is pulling the image from K2000 (which is located in another country).
This dramatically slows down our deployment.
Our RSA is a physical machine running ESXi, and has the virtual appliance installed there.
The switch we are using is a Cisco Catalyst 2960-X 24 port. So bandwidth isn't an issue (as far as we can tell).
We've tried setting the network on the RSA from Auto-Negotiate to 1000mbps Full-Duplex, but when we made that change, the RSA did not respond over the network. We had to change it back.
We've run the test a few times now, and every time it's a different machine that connects to K2000 and tries to pull the image from there.
Our RSA has the DHCP server running... although we also have another DHCP server on the subnet, but has an exclusion range for the range that the RSA is broadcasting on. What we can tell, is that all the machines are picking up an IP from the RSA.
Can anyone help? perhaps, is there a way to turn off a PXE response from K2000 (since we will only be using RSA's during operations)?
