    Never mind, Ive finally given up on Virtual Server, started using VMWare Server and have got Server 2008 installed in about half hour...Vmware seems a much better product

    I remember when I installed it on a test machine in the office.

    Was having a look and play with DHCP then moved on to something else.

    Came in the next day and half the school couldn't find the network. Reason? They were getting addresses from the Server 2008 box. Beware.

    It was that problem that started me worrying about the fact any DHCP server plugged in to your network can give out addresses...the possibilites for disruption...

    Yeah, caused some confusion at the time.. pity u cant lock DHCP servers to only dish out IP's to a given domain or subnet.. though noticed that the DHCP in Win2k8 now seems to have some more options on it.. (NAP?)

    Yeh Network Access Protection and IPv6, which is what I wanted to look at in the first place. gonna be fun trying to remember those, gone the days of oh yeh it's 192.168.25.93 and in come the days of...oh yeah the ip address is 2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:1428:57ab...

    Trouble with DHCP that causes the problem is the client just issues an 'is anyone there command' and will take any offers it gets...like an Essex girl on a Friday night...

    thought with IPv6, consecutive 0's could be remvoed so your example of

    2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:1428:57ab

    would become

    2001:0db8:::::1428:57ab ?

    or something like that..

    Even if you can, the reason they're there is becasue they could be something else, was just an example of the length and structure more than anything.

    Just think instead of 4 lots of 3 numbers, you'll have to jot down 8 lots of 4 hex digits!

    which is why i usually avoid IPv6 - until its needed...

    BTW, this is a good Wiki article on IPv6 for those who wish to delve deeper into the nightmare world of IPv6 since it seems to have a lot of support in Windows 2008...

    Funny, the string in the article is identical to mine...wonder how that happened...hehe...

    I guess 2008 needs support really as no matter if you like it or not, IPv6 is the future.

    Version numbers 0 through 3 were development versions of IPv4 used between 1977 and 1979. Version number 5 was used by the Internet Stream Protocol (IST), an experimental stream protocol. Version numbers 6 through 9 were assigned to experimental protocols designed to replace IPv4: SIPP (known nowadays as IPv6), TP/IX, PIP, and TUBA. Of these, only IPv6 is still in use.

    Oh yes Network Access Protection, this looks to be an interesting set of technologies. I think from what i've read that this can be implemented in a 2003 Active Directory as long as you have one 2008 server running the NAP service.

    Anyone else read that?
