Verifiy whether the NETBIOS server has been disabled on the device as well. This could account for the non-wyse MAC being reported to Rapport.

If this service is disabled, then the Hagent is unable to determine the local MAC address. To maintain unique ID, the Hagent on the device then generates a random value and reports it.

This could affect PXE as well, as the PXE broadcast during boot will have a different MAC address than the device listed in Rapport.

TT is right, you need to enable PortFast on the switch.
You can also test this by putting a hub between the swtich port and the device. This will keep the port active, basically bypassing the delay normally seen.
