DS 8.1 RU1/RU2 - Cannot boot predefined PCs created with static IPs to PXE
Last Updated August 16, 2017
After updating to 8.1 RU1, Predefined computers created with Static IP addresses cannot be imported via the console or CSV file. Because the computers do not show up in the console (nor in the the 'Pre-Defined Computer' filter) these systems cannot PXE boot using the preboot specified for 'Predefined Computers' on the NBS General Settings page.
DS 8.1 RU1/RU2
The predefined computers do not show up in the 'Predefined Computers' page.
A change was made in the filter named 'Pre-defined computers' to accomodate changes made in 'TECH240515'. This issue is a side affect of this change.
This issue is currently under investigation by development.
There are two workarounds available:
Create predefined records with a dynamic IP address
Update the 'Pre-defined Computers' filter using the XML file attached to this KB
Download 'Pre-defined Computers.xml' to the NS
Navigate to 'Manage > Filters'
Expand 'Software Filters'
Right click on 'Agent and Plug-in Filters' and select 'import'. Select the XML file downloaded in step 1.
