Retrospect Backup on DHCP network

Recommended Posts

Hello. I recently migrated to a DHCP network and I'm consistently loosing connections to my backup clients. What is the best way to configure Retrospect to connect to backup clients on a DHCP network (changing hostnames and IP addresses). Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

use DHCP assignment from a DHCP static map by MAC addresses (rather than from a dynamic pool) so that each MAC address always gets the same IP address. That also makes your management easier because the hostnames won't change.

Unfortunately, I have no control over the DHCP configuration. Is there a way to configure this in Retrospect to make it network independant?

(changing hostnames and IP addresses).

 

It becomes somewhat difficult if your PCs change their hostnames all the time. Can this be pinned down so that it doesn't change? How does Active Directory cope with all the PCs having their names randomly changed like that?
