Hi guys,

 

I have just began my venture into Windows server, using 2008 R2.

I have created a small lab > A server PC, two Win7 PCs, all connected via Etherned through a Linksys consumer router dumbed-down to just a switch,

 

So, I have added DNS and AD DS on the server, created a DC and added both Win7 PCs to the AD.

 

My question concerns that in order to connect the Win7 computers to the server, I had to manually assign IP addresses to both of them. And when I installed AD DS, it also installed a DHCP role. However, for whatever reason, I cannot use automaptic IP conifg on any of the Win7 computers - if I do so, it goes to an APIPA address... Isn't the DHCP on the DC supposed to assign IPs to all computers on the network? I know I am missing something, but cannot figure out what. Any help?

You need to install DCHP service role, once installed you need to assign the segments under DHCP services.

You need to authorize the dhcp service for it to start running
