My company has a Server 2008 domain controller that is the primary DC as well as DNS, DHCP and File Sharing , ect. I want to have a DHCP range from 10.200.2.100 to 10.200.2.200. When a client goes to DHCP however, they do not obtain an IP address.
The server 2008 box gives this error within the eventvwr:
The DHCP service failed to see a directory server for authorization.
Event ID 1059
I have tried the steps contained in the technet article about event is 1059 but these steps are not valid for my situation because the article states that this happens when the DHCP server cannot contact a domain controller via the network. The DHCP server IS the DC.
If it helps at all, when I ping the fully qualified domain name of the server from the server I get a reply from "::1:". Im guessing this is IP v6. Would this interfere with DHCP operations? I have already disabled IPv6 on my network card... HELP!
