We have a Server running Server 2003, SP2 with DHCP. The scope is currently defined from 192.168.10.100 to 192.168.10.250. We only have about 60 client computers that are using the DHCP ip addresses.
The problem that I am having right now is that the DHCP scope ip addres are not being used properly. DHCP ip leases as follows:
192.168.10.100 to 192.168.10.118
192.168.10.120 to 192.168.10.124
192.168.10.132 to 192.168.10.140
192.168.10.141 to 192.168.10.248
As you can see there are many ip addresses skipped in the DHCP ip leases. As a result, I am getting warning messages on the server that it is running out of available ip addresses. Please note that I am not able to ping any missing ip addresses (I assume they are not in use).
1. How can I make sure the DHCP utilizes the ip addresses properly without skipping?
Thanks for all your help in advance.
Have happy holidays!
