Hello,

i have a question about the proxyDHCP log.
we have a windows dhcp running and the zcm 11.4.1 is running on the
linux appliance which offers the imaging role and the preboot services.
The proxyDHCP is enabled on the zcm appliance

the pxe boot is working fine and the imaging too.
I just looked at the proxydhcp logfile and there are thousend of entrys like this

i contacted Novell and they told me that The proxydhcp gives you the address of the tftp server to download the image and nvlbp.sys, which is the bootstrap program. Each log entry corresponds to a request it received for this purpose.

But at the moment we dont imaging any device or boot it to pxe and there are thousands of entrys.

Can someone help me with this "problem". I'm not sure if this behavior is normal or if there is a problem with the configuration/network.

Greeting
Steffen
