DHCP bad-address

By raednashat ·
Dear sir :

It seems that I just can not have AD , DNS &
DHCP on the same Windows 2000 server machine.AD & DNS work just fine but the DHCP\
service keeps on issuing the same bad-address
message frequently which leads to IP conflict
I have set the DHCP server to automatically
update the DNS server ( my clients are all
2000 pro) , I have also configured the conflict detection attempt to > 0 .
The problem still occurs so please try to advice me on what to do.
Please check if my www.ahu.edu.jo domain is
properly configured.

Thanks ans best regards.

I am running my domain with AD, DNS and DHCP on the same server without problems. There shouldn't be any.

Your problem might be related to your DHCP configuration and/or your server config.

I have not encountered and issue of same bad-address except when mixing with win98 workstations. Even that have been solve (i forgot how).

You might want to check to see if there are any other machine that is running un-identified DHCP server but with win2k, "rogue" DHCP servers are uneffective because you must authorized a DHCP server from your domain server.

Can't offer much help other than tell you that, like the previous reply, I run AD, DNS, and DHCP all the same server and have no problems...The only problem I had that is remotely similar was that the WINS server (it was the the same server) wasn't configured properly. So I made one of the bdc's the new WINS server, reconfigured dhcp with the new ip, and my conflicts never came back.

win2k pro does register with dns automatically when they get ip address from dhcp server as they r aware of active directory.dhcp server updating dns for clients should be used for non ad aware clients like nt 4 & win9x clients.

hope this helps.
