We have setup a windows Server domain, the server provides DC,DNS,DHCP services. On the Server the DNS is set to 127.0.0.1.

DHCP is set to lease IP address between range 192.168.2.10 - 192.168.2.50

DNS - was set to forwarding

From the Server ipconfig shows the correct IP of the server 192.168.2.222, the subnet is 255.255.255.0 and the gateway is 192.168.2.1

On the domain client machines (Win7SP1) I get an IP lease, I get the DHCP pointing at the server, correct subnet mask however the default gateway field is empty and as a result I have no connectivity from these machines.

How do I rectify this and get the gateway to propagate down?

Have you configured  the "router (default gateway)" option on DHCP server?

Yes within the same scope I have

Option 003
Name Router

But I just noticed that when I went in to check the setting for some reason it was blank....doh that explains it. I see how that happened, when you add a new value for a router, and then press enter thinking it will save and exit, it actually discards and exits.
