Question about Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition x64 for PC
I have started installing active directory for the first time on windows server 2003. the role adding wizard requested DNS and DHCP to be added. after completing the installtion, i tried to configure DHCP but gave that server is not running on the specified host (or somthing like that). i think i made a mitsake in IPs during installtion. i tried to add scope but it is dimmed, i tried to authonticate server but did not help. i removed DHCP and reinstalled it but the wizard did not show the configuration steps that i have seen in the first installtion. my question is: 1. how to remove DHCP completely so that the wizard will show the IP cinfiguration asked during first installation. 2. how can i correct the problem since DHCP service is already running, but i can not point to the correct direction to the server thanks, ps i am first time user for active directory and DHCP, so forgive my ignorance
First of all, read this M$ article on setting up DHCP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/139904
Secondly, check the following:
1. You have defined a valid scope and ACTIVATED it
2. You have AUTHORISED the DCHP server in Active Directory (see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759688(WS.10).aspx)
3. Make sure that there are enough unused IPs in the address pool
Make sure that the DHCP server service is running - and check the EVENT LOG for errors
4. Make sure that there is no other, especially unauthorized, DHCP servers (i.e. router with DHCP enabled)
Actually the best article overall to review is http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc781697(WS.10).aspx, which gives a big picture view regarding the role of DHCP autorization and what can happen in a mixed environment
