  • DHCP migration from 2k to 2k3 – No new IP leases

    Hello,

    I’m in the process of migrating services from a computer running Windows 2000 Server to one that is running Windows Server 2003. After following the steps in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 325473 (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=325473), the 2003 server is not handing out IP addresses. The Knowledge Base article had me disable the DHCP service on the 2000 server, so none of my clients are able to get a new IP when they need one.

    Note: The Windows 2000 server that I migrated DHCP from is a domain controller. The Windows 2003 server that I migrated DHCP to is a domain controller.

    Any ideas about how I can get this going would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you authorised the server within DHCP??

    Right click on the server in the DHCP console and click authorise - This will authorise it to lease out IP Addresses

      Alright, I figured out the problem…me!

      I had activated the scope but forgotten to authorize the server in Active Directory.

      There is a checklist for setting up a DHCP server, in the DHCP server help section. Help-> Help Topics. Click on DHCP in the tree and then select Checklists.
