Problems with a virtual PDC and DHCP
Posted on 2010-08-30
I am building a network from scratch based on the following cofiguration :
Physical server with windows 2008 standard out of domain running hyper v with a virtual windows small business server as a primary domain controller. I also have a second virtual win 2k8 standard virtualisation.
Small business server premium 2008 allows for this.
All is fine except that when the PDC goes offline machines lose their DHCP configuration, which includes the physical server and a nasbox that the virtual images themselves are stored upon.
What's my best option for managing this effectively whilst keeping the disaster recovery benefits of the PDC being a virtualisation.
Thanks in advance.
