SCCM OSD Deployment with static IP address

SCCM OSD Deployment with static IP address

Scenario:
Deploy a new system via SCCM OSD, there is no DHCP in the LAN, hence have to setup static IP on the workstation.
But the problem is, the static IP lost after reboot the workstation.

Solution:

When there is no DHCP, the manually typed IP settings will gone after reboot if you don't fill the data again, becasue TS variables are just created as OS environment variables.

To resolve this, you can add 'Apply Network settings' step in task sequence

Then write a custom script using the SMS.TSEnvironment COM object to set the TS variables to get this done.

Hi

is there a procedure to retain the static ip entered during the winpe phase instead of reentering a new static ip?

Thanks in advance
