all of my lab machines are win2k SP4, identical hardware, and are cast
from a single image.
So I can restore a machine to an exact state in about 15 minutes. On
a script runs that does a reverse lookup of the IP address and changes
to match, then reboots.
So for a particular experimental run:
restore both machines.
change setting on one.
Thanks for you help. This may be an effect of using an ancient version
(2.2.8a) My next challenge will be to see if I can reproduce this on 3.0.23
