Windows Server 2012 R2 DHCP Server Bindings Not listing NIC's

Hi All,

Simple question, can't figure out the answer and am looking for the easy way (ask you all).

I have a Windows Server Standard 2012 R2 Server, I had to remove the NIC's (removed the drivers as well) and replaced them, long story don't want to get into that.  I have now the IP's to static but when I go into the DHCP Manager, it shows it is running but it is not binded to any IP's....

I go to Add/Remove Bindings and nothing is listed....

How can I get the newly setup IP's as binded in DHCP????

OHH and I REALLY don't want to have to uninstall/reinstall or unconfigure/reconfigure DHCP, that is WORSE case scenario.

Thanks again

are you sure that you assigned the same old IP?

DHCP will use the first statically configured binding it finds.  Can you post an ipconfig of the DHCP server?

Also I am SURE I am using the same IP's.

Note: Prior in Windows 2008 R2 I used: dnscmd . /ResetListenAddresses 192.168.1.11

and that worked, not helping now in this case (I also have DNS setup on this server)

All of the enabled NIC as showing DHCP enabled.  This is the problem.  You need to uncheck the enable DHCP on the interface that you want DHCP to run on and manually assign the address.

Here are the problem(s):

DHCP is enabled on both of these interfaces.  This is preventing DHCP from using either of them.

Also, where is your gateway address and where are the DNS server addresses?

ok back to DHCP, ugh I missed it!!!!

OK Note that the NIC's are connected to a switch with nothing else on them....

I am setting a static IP via windows but as soon as I am done setting the IP and I check again the IP shows DHCP?!?!

Trying to figure that out....

Are you a local admin on the server?  Try disconnecting the DHCP from the network (all connections).  restart the server, and try to change the settings again.

ok... so

For the 192.168.1.11 IP I was able to set it via netsh, when I run ipconfig /all I see that DHCP is off.

But when I go through the Network and Sharing Center to manually check, it shows that it is set to DHCP with no IP?!?!

Going to uninstall/reinstall the driver.
