cannot connect to DHCP issue
Posted 22 September 2011 - 02:06 PM
running a DHCP on a 2008r2 with Hyper-V
Scope is set to 10.0.0.50 - 10.0.0.100 (no reservations)
DNS is on 10.0.0.3 and 10.0.0.254
no default gateway as this is a private network
IPaddress is given of course a 169.254.x.x (APIPA)
running ipconfig /renew returns "An error occurred while renewing interface local area connection 6: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out."
I realize this is basic info for this issue.

What happen if you manually set the an ip on the client computer (can it ping the dhcp server...?) ?

I get this message:
" An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection 6 : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out."
"An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1: The system cannot find the file specified."

Did you tried to ping the dhcp server after setting manually an ip ?
Did you checked if a firewall was enable on both the hyper-V host and the 2008R2 dhcp server ?

and i do believe the DHCP is being hosted on the server. not the VM.
firewall is off

If you did ping the dhcp hostname then it's most likely normal.
What are the ip of the servers (the hosted VM and the host) ?
Also believing isn't enough, you have to be sure which computer is hosting the dhcp.
Seriously, i feel like a mechanic who is called over the phone to fix a car by someone who don''t even have a driving license and let alone providing useful information.
