    I know its possible but scripting is not quite my strong point. Can someone point me in the direction of how to set DHCP Client ID names through terminal or if it is at all possible to write a script to have the Client ID match the Sharing Name.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately this is going to be a little more difficult, as the value seems to be stored in:
    Code:
    /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preference.plist
    but is stored keyed by a device uuid, and I am not entirely sure where to look that up in an easy way. No matter what you are going to need to do some slightly more complicated scripting, and that is probably out of the scope here.

    That was my biggest fears. Would be nice if I could do it through ARD but hey thats what manual remediation is for.
