having recently had problems on our windows 2012 r2 dc, we carried out quite a lot of troubleshooting and resetting if things. one of them was to remove the virtual nic and add it back in again.
since then, when we reboot a client it cannot pull through ip addresses using dhcp. if i configure the ip manually, it works fine.
can anyone advise whether replacing the vm nic should affect dhcp, and if so how can i resolve this?
any suggestions much appreciated.
