Constant "Acquiring Network Address" status; No IP address from DH


Have a station in the domain that is unable to obtain an IP address from the
Standard 2003 DHCP server. Tried variuos methods to solve by:

Restarting DHCP Server - Checked Logs - Reserved IP Scope - IPConfig
/flushdns - netsh - arp - DLSFix (Winsock) - reinstalling driver - regedit,
etc.,

The weird thing is it will pick up IP on a local consumer router, another
DHCP server on a differnet segment or a created VLAN.

Thinking is there something I missed in the domain where it is blocking this
particular mac address somewhere? Unable to detect this problem. Please clear
the air for me!

Re: Constant "Acquiring Network Address" status; No IP address fro

That was the first steps that were done to troubleshoot this problem. As
mentioned previously this station (notebook pc) can pick up DHCP from another
segment or consumer router but not from this particular DHCP server on our
domain. There must be something blocking it or a registry entry on the
notebook that is preventing it from acquiring an IP address.

Re: Constant "Acquiring Network Address" status; No IP address fro

Hello,

is DHCP audit logging enabled (from the DHCP MMC, right click server name,
properties checkbox)?
If so, go to :
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Dhcp
And check logs

Else activate it, try to get a lease and check logs

Here is what is generated in the log file:

The DHCP server is denying a lease to mac address 001560B73C90 - Also is

to identify if there was a problem with the integrated NIC. DNS Update
Failed; What to do next from here?

Hello,

DNS update may file if there is a dns ownership issue. You may delete the
dns IN A entry and try again.

You may read this KB, starting at Use the DnsUpdateProxy security group:

How to configure DNS dynamic updates in Windows Server 2003

Re: Constant "Acquiring Network Address" status; No IP address fro

Unjoined the domain using a PCMCIA nic and renamed the computer. Still had to
use PCMCIA nic to rejoin domain, then deleted old DNS entries and tried
again. All settings described in KB816592 you sent are implemented to a tee.
Still not acquiring IP address, so decided to create reservation and got
error "The specified IP address or hardware address is being used by another
client" or get this message "An error occurred while accessing the DHCP
database. Look at the DHCP server event log for more info on this error"
Something is causing a decline to IP but what is it? Nothing in the logs show
any errors and there is no DHCP server event log! Frustration settling
in............???!

Re: Constant "Acquiring Network Address" status; No IP address fro

Finally solved the DHCP IP addressing in the onboard ether port. Checked log
and discovered that DHCP was trying to distribute IP address out of the scope
range. It was attempting at the same time to distibute an IP address marked
as reserved. Temporarily deleted the reserved IP and then the computer
connected! Recreated reserved IP record and all is fine now.
