Hello All,

I just configured a 2008 server and set up DHCP on it. When I went to my XP SP3 box and checked my dhcp snap-in for the 2008 server every thing is fine except the reservation window, it's just blank. I can go to the 2008 server or a 2003 server and see the Reservation list through a snap-in just fine, but not on an XP box, any xp box.

I can't seem to find any patch fixes or bugs reported. Anybody have an idea. It will be a pain if I can no longer use my snap-ins for 2008.

Thanks
Eric

As far as I know there is no fix for this. The is an issue with mmc in XP. I had the same problem when I was using XP but have since upgraded to Win7.

Here is another thread with the same problem.

Yes, it looks like the highest version of mmc you can get in XP is 5.1 where as in Server 2003 it's 5.2 (2003 works fine) and again, in 2008 it's all the way to 6.0.

There doesn't appear to be a version for any higher than 5.1 for XP.
