Access Denied when trying to Authorize DHCP on a child domain Server
Posted on 2016-08-16
I am trying to setup a new dhcp server because my old dhcp server is having a lot of physical difficulties, I guess because it's super old. However, I get a access denied message because I am not part of the enterprise group of the parent domain. The thing is, I inherited this mess and now trying to clean it up while productions still happening each day. I want to know for the time being, is there a work-a-round to force a authorize of DHCP server on the child domain. I have access to the parent domain root server but it's not in use and hasn't been for over 2 years, but they kept it on. I don't want to mess anything up if I start going into Active Directory Domains and Trusts and start replications. These guys been primarily operating on the child domain without any issues until now with this access denied when authorizing a new dhcp server. Please assist and let me know if you need any further information. I would like to rectify this issue quickly and then worry about decommissioning the old root server and just making the child domain the parent domain.
