We have a client with a new server on which I've created a Hyper-V virtual machine from scratch. The host is Server 2008 R2, and the VM is Server 2003 Enterprise. Ever since adding the VM to the network, we have been seeing the DHCP scope filling up with addresses associated with names "minint-xxxxxxx.domain.com", where the xxx's are random characters. I had suspected a virus of some sort on the network, but during troubleshooting we disabled the network port used by the VM, and the DHCP entries ceased. They are showing up at the rate of three addresses per hour, at the :01, :03, and :05 minute marks. The VM has a static IP address, and I recently disabled the DHCP client within the VM. And by the way, the "Unique ID" column in DHCP shows all of them starting with "00163e", which appears to be pertaining to Xensource.
Can anyone shed any light on what's going on, and how we can resolve this?
Thanks in advance,
