I've been having this problem now for a few weeks at least. Throughout the day, different clients, usually between 2 to 6 clients, can't connect to the DHCP server to get an IP address.
I've restarted the PCs (includes both PCs and Macs), and the DHCP server has about 80 IPs available. I have even created a new server, win 2k8 R2, in which I moved my DHCP server from win 2k3 to 2k8 R2, and it's still doing the same thing.
The server is authorized, as everything else is working fine. It's been so speratic that it's happening to PCs on different switches, so I can't say it's only been happening to PC's on only 1 switch, but it's been affecting maybe 5 or 6 different switchs.
I'm just so puzzeled, I don't know what else to try to get this working. When I assign a static IP address, it works fine. The problem is that I only have 3 static IP address left, so that's not an option. I really need some help, as I don't know what else to do. I have restarted the DHCP server service, and but still no go. The DHCp server is authorized, as when I go to properties, it gives me the option of "unauthorize", so it's authorized.
I have a dell 6024 switch that does all the internal routing, can that be having issues?
