    VM Workstation with Guest DHCP Server

    Hi,

    I'm currently in the process of creating a mirror version of our network in vm workstation for testing purposes.

    The current setup is.

    1 Windows 2003 Domain Controller running DNS and DHCP Server using
    Vnet 8 (NAT) for internet and VMet 2 for private lan
    1 Windows 2003 Sever Running SQL Server 2005 using VMet 2
    1 Windows 2003 Sever Running RIS and WSUS using VMet 2
    1 Windows XP Client using VMet 2

    The issue i'm having is all the non domain controller images are not picking up DHCP leases, I have set reservations for the servers and the xp client should pick an ip from the scope but isn't.

    I have disabled the DHCP server in VM Workstation as i need the ability to network boot from the ris server.

    All the images were able to pick up an ip if i used the vm worksation dhcp server.

    Has anyone been able to get a guest image to dish out ip address?

    TIA

    Yes.. but you've got a dual homed DHCP server, whereas I've always thrown everything on one virtual network (in most cases that has been VMNet8).
