Windows 7 clients won't obtain a DHCP address from the Win 2003 domain controller. When the IPv4 protocol is set to 'Obtain an IP address automatically' it gets assigned an alternate ip and then cannot connect to the internet or domain resources. IPv6 is unchecked and I am pointing to our DNS servers in the DNS configuration. If I assign a static IP on our domain, then all works well.
XP clients do not have a problem. I have tried more than one Win 7 client and the same problem occurs.
What is the fix for this? I have looked read many blogs on this and other web sites, but nothing has pointed a way to a fix.
