DHCPMGMT.MSC in Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) won't remember DHCP server

Q: DHCPMGMT.MSC in Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) won't remember DHCP server

I'm running Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and I've noticed that when I run the DHCP Management tool (DHCPMGMT.MSC) and I add our DHCP Authorised server then close the console, it forgets the DHCP server and I
have to re-select it next time I use the console.
On the other hand, the DNS console remembers that I've used a particular DNS server even after I close the console.
Wondering why the DHCP Management console is so forgetful?

Preferred Solution: DHCPMGMT.MSC in Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) won't remember DHCP server

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm messing around with W2K Server at home and can't seem to get it connected through my cable modem to my ISP's DHCP server. I know the cable and connection are good because it works on my W2K Pro workstation. I've tried ipconfig /renew but that's when the error occurs that it can't find DHCP. I can successfully ping the loopback address. The NIC is set to use DHCP.

Since I'm just becoming familiar with Server I'm sure there's something I'm not configuring properly. Suggestions?

I was trying to use tftp32d to pxe boot machines however, I couldn't get the DHCP server that is built into that program to work and eventually got angry and gave up. When I had some more patience, I started trying it again and it worked immediately without any settings changed.

The reason for my post is because it stopped working again. I can't figure it out and it's driving me nuts. Could this be an issue with the setting where you can select which network your own for example work, home or public location?

I'm running a simple network at home with a Linksys BEFSR41 router. I have two computers hooked up wired and a wireless router acting like an access point that I use for my laptop occasionally. Until this weekend I've been having no problems but I shut down the computers due to weather and now one of them is not able to communicate with any others on the network. The problem computer will get an address supplied to it by the router (DHCP server) but once it has it I cannot get any other connectivity. Of course this is hindering internet access on this computer. I can ping the loopback and assigned IP addresses w/o problems but when I ping the default gateway (router) and/or the other computer I get "Request timed out." I initially thought it was the NIC so I bought another one but still get the same issue. I've moved the cards to different PCI slots but no luck. I tested the cable running from the computer and the router but found no problems. I even tried resetting the TCP/IP stack but still didn't work. The computer in question is running WinXP SP2 with the original NIC being a Linksys LNE100TX and the new one being a D-Link DFE-530TX+.

Any clues on this? If more info is needed let me know--it's been a while since I've posted. Thanks in advance.

Is it better to use Win2000 Server DHCP or DHCP from my Netgear wireless router?

I am currently in the process of setting up a Win2000 server on my home network which consists of four other 2000/XP machines.
The server is going to be configured as a domain controller and will utilize the Active Directory.

Should I use the Win2000 Server DHCP or stick with my wireless router as the DHCP server? What are the advantages/disadvantages to both and which would be easier to maintain.

Is a 550mhz PIII with 256MB RAM fast enough to make a good home server running Win2000 server?

The server is going to have (2) 120GB Western Digital 7200rpm drives with 8MB cache for storage and a single 60GB Western Digital 7200rpm drive for the OS and few other applications.

The server's primary function is to serve as a media server with an approaching 10GB of MP3 and music video files which is continually going to grow. Disk contention is at a minimum since there are only four PC's on the network. There will also be a lot of digital photos stored on the server and will also serve as a place to perform backups from the other four networked PC's.

A:Win2000 Server DHCP or Router DHCP?

We have a similar setup in our office using Small Business Server, a public IP coming into our router with DHCP turned on, connected to a NIC in the internal DHCP server (which is also running ISA). A second NIC in the server bridges to the internal hub to provide DHCP services to the clients. This way we control port filtering in 2 places and with 2 levels of NAT taking place we feel secure. It may be overkill but we're concerned that EVERYONE is trying to hack into ISA and DHCP servers connected directly to public IP that this setup provides an added level of security.

Here is my current configuration:

We have 7MB/768K DSL Business dynamic IP connection.
Anywhere from 10-20 simultaneous users.
One Cisco 30 port switch feeding into one Linksys wireless router to provide local IP addresses to all the users for the one IP address to the world.

It seems to me we have a huge bottleneck at the wireless router but we need it for the DHCP server in that router.

Are there any low cost solutions that would provide faster performance for the users?

A:DHCP Server (Do I need one?)

Hi skibizkit, and welcome to TSG.

skibizkit said:

... provide local IP addresses to all the users for the one IP address to the world.

It seems to me we have a huge bottleneck at the wireless router but we need it for the DHCP server in that router.Click to expand...

Sharing a single Public (world) IP address with multiple Private (local) IP addresses will require some type of router that supports NAT (Network Address Translation). Running a DHCP server on the router should only add a small amount of local bandwidth usage when a computer first connects to the router and gets assigned its private IP address by the DHCP server. The DHCP server is then out of the picture until another computer comes on line or the DHCP lease time (could be up several days) expires for each computer.

Is the speed bottleneck related to accessing the Internet through the DSL connection or exchanging data between computers (and servers) on the same local network?

Right now I have my server connected to a router and the router does the dhcp for me. I am thinking of putting a second nic in the server and using it for dhcp. If I have computers in the house that are not a part of my domain will I still be able to get online with them if they are connected to my switch? I guess to paraphrase myself I am asking can you use a server to route and not have everyone connected to the server in your domain?

A:Server DHCP or No

I'm not sure what DHCP has to do with routing... Are you trying to break your network into subnets?

You wouldn't need a second NIC to move DHCP to your server. If you want to move DHCP from your router to your server, just set up a new DHCP scope on the server and that's all that's required. Clients do not have to be part of the domain to get an address from a DHCP server.

A brand-new Compaq workstation running Windows Vista has to log in to the Dell PowerEdge server (running Windows Server 2003) every time it reboots. Each time we log in to the server from the workstation, we check the box that says, "Remember password," but it doesn't. My assumption is that it's a security issue somewhere, but since I'm new to Vista, I don't know where to start. The workstation is pre-loaded with Windows Defender, Norton Protection Center and no telling what else.

Anybody know a good starting point?


A:Workstation can't remember server password after reboot

Update... actually, the workstation doesn't have to be rebooted to require a log-in to the server. As soon as someone connects to the server from the workstation and closes whatever window was open, the server can't be accessed again without logging on. But if you log on and leave the server folder open, you can work all day without logging in again. Hmmm.... I've never seen anything like it.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Work in school with about 35 w98 clients and nt 4 server, recently had broadband installed so I had to change the IP address on the server as requested by broadband company then set up new dhcp scope for clients. Server reboots with new ip but cannot release and renew ip addresses on clients. (I had logged them all on ready.) Activated and reactiveted scope, changed ip back to orginal it all works but when you change it back to new settings clients can't see server, I gave one client a static address from the new range (an excluded number) and it logs on sweet as a nut - so I'm thinking dhcp problem. Also when I do IPconfig on server it gives 2 nic addresses for one mac address why?Any help would be appreciated!

A:nt server dhcp problems

Begining is the best solution!! hehe! So, You should do your DHCP as a new one, anyway, you were given a new IP, so it's absolutely new, isn't it!
Try mine!
Seperate DHCP from network, simply unplug the connector!
Stop DNS, delete your DHCP scope.
Uninstall, yes, uninstall you NIC!
NEXT! Do it in reverse!
Reinstall you NIC by restarting Windows! type cmd in Run command and ipconfig /all. How many NIC you have now? ( ofcourse, after you set the static IP, subnet...)
Restart DNS.
Create new DHCP scope, activevate,... ( Be sure you do it completely right).
Now, renew until DHCP work, ( Until you see the green light, you knew it).

Is it better to have my win2k server distribute IP's, or my my router? Is there a difference? Are there any benefits or drawbacks from doing it one way or the other? What would happen if both are set for DHCP? Thanks

A:DHCP: server or router?

the DHCP server is probably the correct way that i have to approach the previous networking ip address dorm question. It is perplexing, in that other students also have gotten the same type of ip address conflict. I take it that that would more than likely indicate that DHCP is in effect. What to do from here? Kindly advise further

Again, THANKSi

Hi Geeks!
I want to backup my DHCP server. I want to make sure that if my DHCP server goes down for some reason there is a server at standby that can come and takeover as a DHCP server and start leasing the addresses.
Or if i can add an additional DHCP server.
My Current DHCP Server is Windows 2000 Professional.
Is there any way that i can create a DHCP backup server as in case of Active Directory...

Kindly let me know if anyone has any sort of solution

We have a Local Area Network at work and on this network we have a VM Server with Windows 2003 Server R2 that we plan on using for Active Directory and this server also has DHCP and DNS Server configured on it. is the Server IP. NAT is not configured on the server but is configured on the router.
From this Network I have my own private address range
which connects to my NAT Router. I am able to get an ip address of from the DHCP Server for my XP Client

interface vlan10
ip address
ip nat outside
no shutdown

Next I setup a second interface on my NAT Router.
Interface Vlan 300
ip address
ip nat inside
ip helper address
no shutdown

I set up the range on the same DHCP Server
When I connect my Windows XP Client to Interface Vlan 300 I am unable to get a DHCP address on this client but on the server it says that it received an ip address.
DHCP Server address
ip address

DHCP Server Setup
Vlan 300
ip range -
DHCP Options:
003 Router
006 DNS Server
015 DNS Domain Name SQA.com
046 WINS/NBT Node Type 0x8

Any Ideas on how to fix this so I can get a DHCP address on Interface Vlan 300 I am assuming it is a configuration issue.

A:DHCP Server behind a NAT Router

it's actually a routing issue; if you can add proper routing from the router to the server,
it will all work.

HOWEVER, it would be far easier to just place all systems in the same subnet.

My internet browsing has slowed to a crawl and I cannot access web meetings and other sites I have subscribed to. I did some system testing and everything came back normal except for the following: VIA Compatible Fast Ethernet Adapter: failed DHCP Server = failed pinging w/32 bytes of data request timed out (this is repeated 4 times) ping statistics for packets: send=4 received=o How can I fix this failure? Is this DHCP server from the browser; from my internet provider? Who issues this protocol number and can I change it, do I need to change it? When my computer is running the way it should it is fast and the problem with it acting so slow was intermittent for a while, now it is constant.
I use windows XP
