client ws no longer gets ip from dhcp service

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.

Could be, check if the DHCP server is still bound to the current working NIC

is that in the dhcp module?

thanks

In dhcpmgmt.msc, right mouse click on the leaf BELOW DHCP (the server name) > Add/Remove Bindings....
In the IPv4 tab, it should have a value of a current IP nr/NIC and the checkbox in front of it should be checked (Obviously, if you meant IPv6, same applies for the IPv6 tab)
CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.

thanks

yes, the nic is detailed here / correct name and ip address?

any other suggestions?

Restart service or whole server. Check the DHCP logfile, and the eventlog for anything out of the ordinary.
