  • Suspect DHCP problem 2000 server

    Any thoughts welcome. (using administrative login)
    1. When trying to add additional XP workstations to the network domain, I could not connect to the network before stopping and then restarting DHCP services. (each machine)
    2. After being shutdown for 2 days cannot reconnect these machines to the network.

    Ae you running out of IP addresses and restarting the DHCP service free's them all up???

      Thanks, good suggestion seems to have resolved the issue. I need to look into why some addresses are assigned and not in use.

        I had the same problem at my last job where we used W2k servers. It was a ghosting issue within DHCP that was handing out IP addresses to itself. It didnt happen very often but when it did. I had to go into DHCP console and run the reconsile scope option to show all entries and then select the ghost address and remove them.

        I could never figure out a perm fix for this thou.
