Win 2008 R2 DHCP Servers - BAD_ADDRESS

My 2 DC's in another site (since replacement of a firewall) are giving outr all IP's in the scope.

I also noticed that the autoconfig option on the Local VM NICs were also picking up a 169 IP and losing connectivity with the LAN, but also showed its original static IP as an auto configured IP...

So i found a fix (for now) to get the 2x DC's up but disabling DHCP client service and other settings for the local DC's.  Fine, but i still am getting BAD_ADDRESSES in the DHCP servers.

Ideas, before i go back and replace the firewall?

Thanks

Since this happened right after a firewall was replaced, I would suspect the new firewall has its DHCP server enabled.  But you may need to check the whole network for rouge DHCP servers, and enable conflict detection as well.

Also, try extending the DHCP lease time to several days, so clients only need to refresh their IP address once a week or so.

if you havent already turn on the conflict detection in properties of dhcp server.

for one client, what does ipconfig /all say it gets its address from?  you say it got an apipa address but had static address before - do you mean alternative address setting?

also is firewall sending dhcp requests through dhcp helper / relay setting to your other site so that is replying and allocating that subnet.

i presume if both servers are doing dhcp that you have non overlapping ranges, or ratherscope is full range and exclude the other servers ranges?

Yes, scopes were fine, as was the LAN itself.
