Hi,

I want to reclaim some addresses with dhcp manager. My Range for Distribution is now 192.168.100.112 - 192.168.100.215 as depicted in the attached pic, and I want to add some at the lower end. I can't seem to make any changes to the Address Range for Distribution. Right click ad I get, "Refresh" and "Help" there doesn't seem to be a way to make an adjustment to it. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks - Gary

are you able to see the property option, while right click on "scope options?

if yes, then you can see the range and change it.

Right click the scope instead of the Address Pool and then you can do it.

Make sure to stop and start the DHCP Server service too.

And here is an edited screenshot (about editing the Scope, rather than the pool)

Sorry I might have told you wrong to begin with too.  After further reading your original post, you just need to right click on the actual range in the middle column.  See my attached screenshot.  Sorry for all the confusion, it's been a long day here.

I have tried every type of clicking on the thing you have highlighted and get either Refresh or Help, when right clicking, and nothing comes up when I double click. Very frustrating. Are you able to make changes when you right click on yours?

Right clicking on Scope I get: Display Statistics, reconcile, Deactivate, Delete, Refresh, Properties, and Help. Now I see when I click on Properties, it gives me the option! MS could have done a little better job of making this more available. Oh well, Thanks!
