I have a server 2008 virtual machine which i am trying to setup as a dhcp server.
I already made it a domain controller and setup dns appropriately to forward DNS queries to my isp. I have actually already tested it by setting up one of my workstations with a static ip which resolves dns queries through the domain controller. It worked we can access the internet from that machine.
Now i want to install DHCP to dish out ip addresses to the rest of the machines on the network.
I disabled DHCP in the router and all of the workstations currently have static ip's. I installed the DHCP role on my server and setup a scope of 192.168.0.2 thru 192.168.0.179.
When i go to one of my workstations and set it to obtain the ip automatically nothing happens, it never gets an ip address. btw the ip address to my domain controller is 192.168.0.180 just incase that matters for anything. What could i be missing?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
