  • DHCP Server problem.

    I have a single windows 2003 R2 server,

    I have setup DHCP which is active,

    but the windows xp pro clients cannot receive ip addresses, I just get limited access error.

    if I set static addresses they connect .

    can anyone help?

    Re: DHCP Server problem.

    Are you using Active Directory? If so, has your DHCP server been authorized? This needs to happen in order for a dhcp server to start handing out addresses.

    If that isn't the issue, the next question is are your clients and the dhcp server on the same network segment? If not, your router(s) need to be configured to forward dhcp broadcasts.

      Also check the service is running and for events in the event log too.

        Hi

        You need to give us a little bit more info to get a more accurate answer.
        Are you on a Workgroup or AD env?
        Have you configured and activated the scope?
        Is the Client IP address in the range 169.254.x.x?
        If in AD, have you authorised the DHCP server?

        Cheers

          I am using AD and it is authorized and DHCP server is on same segment.

            Scope is activated.

            AD is authorized.

                What is the IP range and subnet mask you have set in DHCP?

                Supplying lots of info about your system/setup would allow the members responding to your problem a lot faster than providing the info in a drip feed fashion. I would suggest reading the following link to help you in this regard. http://forums.petri.com/announcement.php?f=47

                    Does your modem/router have DHCP disabled?

                            On the server go to network connections --> advanced --> advanced connection and make sure that the correct nic is above

                            Or disable the second nic and try again.

                              I can try to install Wireshark on 2k3 server to check that broadcasted DHCP frames manage to rich the dhcp server interface. Maybe the switches are configured with some security rules, like dhcp snooping from Cisco Catalyst. You may also check the dhcp logs to see if something is wrong.
