I am trying to configure the Windows Release DHCP Lease on Shutdown option, but it's not working. I have it setup in scope options with a value of 0x1. I'm running Windows 2003. Has anyone ran into this problem, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

From what I can remember with this setting, it is set on the client side.  Where are you setting the 0x1 option and through which means (GP, script, etc...)?

I did find this post from here -> http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-2003/server-2003-dhcp/2889.html

From:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/WindowsServ/2003/all/techref/en-us/Default.asp?url=/Resources/Documentation/windowsserv/2003/all/techref/en-us/w2k3tr_dhcp_tools.asp

"Release DHCP Lease on Shutdown
This option can be used to control whether DHCP-enabled computers running Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003 sends a DHCPRelease message to the DHCP server when a shutdown occurs. It is actually implemented and interpreted as a bit-masked value by the DHCP Client service. By default, these clients do not send DHCPRelease messages on proper shutdown.

Code 2

Length 4 octets

Value Accepted values for this option are:

1 = DHCP clients send a DHCPRelease message on proper shutdown
0 = DHCP clients do not send a DHCPRelease message on proper shutdown
Structure of Release DHCP Lease on Shutdown

Code Length Release

I go into Scope Options--> Add Option--> Advanced Tab-->Microsoft Options in dropdown menu--> Default User Class in Users Class dropdown--> Select Code 002--> Value is 0x1.

That's where it's set and I don't get any results. Thanks

I believe I got it working. I was on an XP box, and Microsoft Options wouldn't work, but when I went to Microsoft Windows 2000 options and did the same setting. It did work. Thanks for the replies.

No argument here.  Glad you find the solution.  May be worth accepting your own answer so others will know what worked.  Just a thought.  Either way, glad to work with you.
