Hi guys, if DHCP server failing to assign IP Address to the workstation, what could be the problem? any idea is greatly appreciated...

I tried IPCONFIG /RENEW on a workstation but it fails..

If i tried to manually configure the IP settings on TCP-IP workstation can connect to internet..

But if I set the TCP-IP settings to "Obtain Automatically IP Address" it fails...

OS:WIN2K3

This may be an issue with the Firewall.

Has the server run out of addresses?
How big is the scope?

@jbennet
i don't think it run out of addresses, because we got a few workstation only.. about 20 workstation only...

it started with one workstation suddenly cannot renew an ip ad..so what i did i manually set the settings at TCP-IP and able to work normally..

then one day all the workstation suddenly cannot go internet...

this could be an issue of a virus or what?

@sparkax
firewall issue on the server? i don't think so

Try restarting the DHCP service on the server?

the problem might not be your system, it might be as a result of improperly configured DHCP server, contact your network administrator

Try restarting the DHCP service on the server?
