I have recently migrated a windows 2008 DC to windows 2012 and it is completed.
now 2012 is the GC and demoted the 2008 server. 2008 was the dhcp server and I installed dhsp role in 2012 and unauthorised 2008 server. migrated the dhcp config also to 2012 server.
but dhcp leasing is not working at all and it is giving errors like 1046 and 1056.

Error 1046 means the DHCP server needs to be authorized

Issue following command to get it solved:
Netsh DCHP add server <fqdn> <ip>

Open in new window


Error 1056 means that Dynamic DNS credentials are not configured

Following command should solve this:
Netsh DHCP set dnscredentials username domain password

Open in new window

The issue with dhcp is resolved by doing the below

I disconnected the 2012 server from present network and connected to another switch with one workstation, installed dhcp and it worked instantly
Then I logged in to the core switch (cisco 3560) and found the entries as
#ip domain name 192.168.10.2 (ip address of 2008 server)
Few vlans are also configured in switch and under each vlan I found the entry as
#ip helper-address 192.168.10.2 (ip address of 2008 again)

I replaced the same with 2012 ip and dhcp started working from 2012 immediately.

Still iam not able to understand the concept is that entry helper-address means dhcp leasing in cisco
