Re: ADSM with DHCP Clients
We have a mixture windows and AIX clients, some with fixed IP addresses
and some using DHCP.
We don't do anything special for the ones using DHCP, and have had no
problem with it.

We use DHCP in our environment. This was a trial and error
for us also.
We identify the users computer by last name first initial and
for example: I work in office number 1212 my nodename is
in the opt's file.
Eventually we want to use the name in the Computer Name entry,
to 15 charaters by the the way, so that
ADSM will pull the name from there. If you leave the nodename
of the opt's file ADSM will look to the Computer Name defined in
Network Neighborhood properties for the nodename.
When scheduler runs ADSM server captures the Nodename and IP
the client and will use it when the schedule runs to contact the
Good luck -
