DHCP & Hibernation

By mreynoldsuk ·
What happens to a DHCP IP Address should the lease run out during hibernation? Is a new IP issued or does the hibernating machine keep it's existing IP address?

DHCP

by djent In reply to DHCP & Hibernation

It will usually keep the same IP address. Is wake on LAN enabled? I would disable sleep on a DHCP master or use a router as server. The master browser is a different issue, force one machine to be the master browser and disable sleep.
