DHCP server showing wrong IP address in the configuration window on Windows Server 2012

Hello all,

I have setup a second DHCP server within my domain, but for some reason, the server listed is, which is very odd as the server IP address is and the authorized server name is cadca-dc01.cadcasbs.local.  Is it anyway possible to configure the DHCP server so that it shows the proper information dc01.cadcasbs.local?  As part of troubleshooting steps, I even attempted to add the server from the list of authorized servers by selecting dc01.cadcacsbs.local but after doing so, it loaded the IP address

On a second note, I can go to the other DHCP server (cadca-dc02.cadcasbs.local) and add cadca-dc01.cadca.local to the list of DHCP servers to manage and the name is correct.

Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks in advance,

169.254 is an APIPA address - as self-assigned address.  

I'm guessing your DHCP server a NIC without a static IP address and the DHCP service is bound to that NIC.  Give your NIC a static IP (or assign the DHCP service to a NIC that already has one) and you'll be good to go.

You hit it right on the head, basically my server has two NIC card, I had setup a static IP address on one of time but didn't do anything with the other one.  I disabled the NIC note in use and added cadca-dc01.cadcasbs.local with no issues.  Thanks for the solution.
