Switch setup for laptop trolley
I'm guessing this goes in "Wired Networks"...
We've got a few Cisco Catalyst 2950's knocking about that I'm sorting for our laptop trollies [2x16 laptops]
I've had to do a factory reset as no-one knows the password so I can't set them up with a new IP. Everything has seemingly gone through properly, I can connect to the web interface and when a pre-build computer is attached to one it can still access the network, albeit slowly.
However, when I try to PxE boot our laptops through the switch the port becomes "disabled" on the web interface and re-enables after a little while. The laptop itself can download the boot image perfectly fine, but is assigned an I.P from the 169.254.x.x range and then doesn't pick up the domain. [The option to manually input the domain and Windows Key is disabled.]
Is there something I've forgotten to do or is this an exercise in futility?
