Architecture.png

The architecture is illustrated above, but consists of a static IP address for the Thinmanager server (which is in this case also the RDP server).  The client was configured in the BIOS to boot from the network card.

 

This is what it looks like from VMWare Workstation.

First we will enable and configure the PXE server in Thinmanager.  Thinmanager will be configured not to use DHCP and an address range will be allocated to clients (shown over the following 3 images).
