Guide to setting up a home lab

I would like to set up a home lab using virtual box. I am basically looking to create one windows server 2008 r2 domain controller that has dns, dhcp and run active directory.  I would also be creating 2 clients. Windows 7 and windows 10 clients. I Have not problem setting up the clients and the server but how do I get them to talk to each other?  I would like to have have the clients get their ip address from the dhcp server running on the windows server. I am not sure how to go about this.  I created the server, added the dhcp role and configured the scope.  I brought the clients online but they do not get an ip address from the server.  Do I need to add some sort of virtual network device to make this work?

It appears the part I was missing was to set the network card "attached to - internal network"  I am now able to join the domain and get the ip settings from the DHCP server.
