I have read the numerous threads about the same thing and no one seems to have a solution. Today in an attempt to push an image to 30 computers, I found thesame situation. PC gets a leg IP from DHCP only to have Acronis SW not use it and can not find the server. I have strong feeling the cause of this is because the correct NIC drivers are not build into the Acronis SW. I was able to disable the RealTEK nic and install a old PCI Intel and the whole process went fine. I have a call into Acronis support and am waiting for a responce. I will keep the tread up todate.
