Dear:

How to inforce the users to logon to the domain first to get DHCP information, without logoning to the domain they can not get any information from DHCP server (such as IP, ... etc) ?

Thanks :)

Hi muhammadSalem,

I don't think this is possible, as how would the clients be able to logon the domain if they don't have a valid IP-address yet, which they have to obtain from the DHCP server.

Greetings,

Dear LucF :

Sorry !! I did big mistake :) you are right ... But I want to inforce the users to logon to the domain, Is any way to do it ? like put some information in DHCP server to set the domain in the clients network options (Settings), In this case if it is possible their settings will change to logon to the domain.

Thanks :)

Nope, such a thing isn't possible also, this could give big problems. For instance, imagine I come to your company with my laptop, I ask if I may use your internet connection to check some things and then plugin my laptop on the network, my settings will get changed and I wouldn't even be able to login to my own computer anymore.
