I've setup the DHCP Server Role in Server 2012 using the built-in wizard, setup scope, options, etc. and it functions properly on our domain.  But, the DHCP server icon in the DCHP management console displays the "link local" address, not the static IP of the local server (the only DC on our network) -- JPEG attached to this post.  I've deleted and recreated the scope and the 169.254.x.x address continues to be displayed.  Should I be concerned?

Also... could you show the output of this from the server:
start
run
cmd
ipconfig /all
exit

Solution: Our server has 2 NICs.  One is our primary NIC to our LAN, the other was disconnected (but still enabled).  Disabling the unused NIC fixed the problem.

No one else responded with the right solution.  Found this solution via a Google search with the next 2012 Server I setup and another client.
