SCCM: Reusing the same NIC for multiple PXE initiated deployments in System Center Configuration Manger OSD

Microsoft SCCM OSD support published a nice article about the subj: http://blogs.technet.com/b/system_center_configuration_manager_operating_system_deployment_support_blog/archive/2015/08/27/re_2d00_use-the-same-nic-for-multiple-pxe-initiated-deployments.aspx

 

You basically need to add MAC address of a docking station or USB NIC you use for multiple machines to SCCM Discovery exclusion via editing SCCM registry as described:

This can be done by opening Regedit on the site server and navigating to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Components \SMS_DISCOVERY_DATA_MANAGER

followed by editing the registry value of:

ExcludeMACAddress

This registry key value is a multi-string value that is the placeholder of the list of MAC addresses to be filtered. The registry key holds one MAC address per line in the following format:

50:1A:C5:FE:AA:8C

 

Note the known computers should be introduced with GUID instead of MAC after that. Please read details in the article.
