DHCP server role: Configuring a DHCP server


http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756865.aspx


When it is setup properly and your workstation is set to obtain an IP Address Automatically.


Open a Command Prompt on the workstation and type in ipconfig /all


This will give you a list of your connections.

Example:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:


Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : minero.local

Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes

Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes

IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.20.20.22

Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.254.0

what is running your dhcp. linux? windows? some linksys router?

on a workstation that's supposed to get an address, run an ipconfig /all in command prompt (if running windows) and see what shows up as dhcp. or, run an ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew. if you get an address, you're dhcp is okay.
