Client32, Winnt 4.0 can't get IP from DHCP - NW4.11
Posted on 2000-04-13
We have a WAN with four (4) NW4.11 servers connected by T1.
Most of the workstations are Win95 but I'm using a Dell n/b with NT4.0 and sp6a. The PCCard is a 3Com 10/100/V90. I continue to have the following problem:
When I go to ANOTHER site on the WAN and boot the n/b it cannot find the Tree. When I click the Tree button in NWClient 4.7 it comes up 'blank'. When I log in locally to the workstation the 'Event Viewer' shows a DHCP error as follows:
"DHCP failed to renew a lease for the card with network address 005004963141. The following error occurred :
The semaphore timeout period has expired."
It seems that the n/b can't find the server to get an IP?? There doesn't seem to be a winipcfg equivalent (release/renew) in NT4.0 or is there?
I don't have any DHCP problems at the site that I normally work at.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
