DHCP scope not showing Authorize
Posted on 2011-10-12
I have a 2008 server that I have made a domain controller. The FSMO roles still sit with a 2003 DC as does the DHCP scope. I want to transfer the roles to the 2008 server and authorize the scope on the same server, however the authorize capability on the scope is not showing. Do I need to make the 2008 DC the FSMO roles holder before I can authorize the scope? I have DNS running on my 2008 DC and have changed all my static IP entries to point to that server so all that is left is the FSMO roles and DHCP. Basically I want the 2008 DC to be my DHCP, DNS, WINS, AD server and put the 2003 DC out to pasture. A former co-worker mentioned changing the static DNS first, then authorize the scope, then transfer the roles. Any assistance would be appreciated.
