DNS server not resolving names

By schukwu ·
I have two DHCP servers, one acts as a backup. Currently, users who need to renew their IP addresses are not able to do so. But the systems accepts static addresses.

Does anyone know how I can resolve this problem?

DNS server not resolving names

by Delightful Deb In reply to DNS server not resolving ...

When you try to resolve a host name using Domain Name Service (DNS), the attempt is unsuccessful.
CAUSE
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client Service may not be running.
RESOLUTION
Start the DHCP Client Service, and then set itto start automatically at startup. To do so, follow these steps:
Right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, and then click Manage.
In the Computer Management console, double-click Services and Applications, and then click Services.
In therightmost window, right-click DHCP Client and then click Properties.
Change Startup type to Automatic, and then click OK.
Right-click the DHCP Client service again, and then click Start.
I am guessing you are Using 2000 - is that right?. Also check the expiry date on the leases for the DHCP Assignment.

Debbie
