  • DHCP Scope no Client Names

    I've got several scopes running on a 2003 server. In 1 of the scopes, i have about 30 lease records that have no client name listed in the record. What's more strange is that when i delete these records they are recreated within about an hour. A few further notes:

    1) I can ping the addresses
    2) The lease expiration time is always within an hour of checking the scope (eg. if i logon to dhcp server at 11am the lease expiration of these records will be 11.45)
    3) I have recently migrated the dhcp server from an NT box. The scope settings were originally configured to provide clients with an "unlimited" lease.

    Thanks for any help

    You will need to go to each clients and run ipconfig /release, ipconfig /revew (You do it via logon script also - but set reboot after running ipconfig command).
    There some nice clients out there the doesnt know that the TTL of the scope was changes..
