DHCP not working as expected
This is all done virtually, by the way, via VMWare, so if this ought to be in the virtual forums, can an admin please move it? Thanks! :)
Down to business..
I'm probably doing everything wrong since this is a rather 'in-at-the-deep-end' experiment, but in an effort to learn more about the server-side gubbins of networking I'm trying to build a virtual DC. It also is to function as the DNS and the DHCP.
I have the server with the roles added and I've set up the DHCP pool. (192.168.128.128 - 192.168.128.144)
I've added pool rules stating Default Gateway is 192.168.128.254, and the DNS server is at 192.168.128.1 - this should allow a client using a DHCP address to locate the DNS server and connect to the domain, right? Only that's not how it's playing out. Bizarrely, IPv4 address and on the client is wrong. It's getting a default gateway of .2 and I'm thoroughly confused.
Compare the IPCONFIG results of ATLAS (192.168.128.2) to the DHCP lease (192.168.128.1)
The default gateway should be 192.168.128.254. I have no idea where it's getting 192.168.128.2 from.
