IGEL OS thin clients on the network grab the name of a Windows client?


Hello everyone, I’m having the following problem that sometimes some IGEL thin clients on the network grab the name of a Windows client.

In my case this prevents certain Citrix policies from being processed because they are bound to client names, e.g. “ITC*”.

Unfortunately I can’t find an explanation why this happens?

Thanks


are you usng microsoft dhcp? if so, enable name protection


Ok i will try it thanks

TL;DR

If a Windows client already has registered a DHCP lease and has DNS A/AAAA/PTR records registered, if a non-Windows device attempts to register the same lease OR DNS records, the registrations fail.
