DHCP scope leas only showing IP Address for "name". I had to delete the old scope and create a new one. It is showing the leases but not showing the names and the end computers say they cant find the dhcp server.

There is not a relay agent. It was working an hour ago but it had a split scope with another server that crashed long ago. The subnet mask was and I needed more address's but could not get them so I deleted the old scope and created a new one.

When you delete the scope and created a new one

 did you make sure that DHCP was active for the domain?

Can you ping any device by FQDN?

What OS are the servers?

Are you using Scope or Server options to assign DNS servers, or are the DNS servers assigned manually?
