DHCP does not assign IP addresses

Hello,

Have SBS 2008.  Virtualized it on ESXi 5.1.  Virtualizes no problem.  Booted up in safe mode and assigned the static IP.  Booted into Windows - no problem.  Installed VM tools, again no issues.  However,  DHCP will not assign addresses.  The scope is activated and authorized.  I have even gone as far as to deactivate, unauthorize and delete the scope and recreate everything, still DHCP will not assign IP's.  I have turned on DHCP on the firewall, and it works, but i need the server to hand out IPs... Any ideas?

Hello odddball,

try to run "fix my network" wizard from SBS console.

If it will not help, run SBS best practices analyzer:

Might there be 2 NICs, of any sort, present on the SBS?  IF so it will 'break' DHCP, as will enabling Hyper-V, but I assume the latter is not the case here.

Is the DHCP server Binding set to the correct NIC?

Is there possibly another DHCP server on the network?
