I install the DHCP server role without problems on Core. After this, I add the DHCP server and try build the scope with several netsh commands, but I get "access denied" error messages. From other machine I list the Services MMC, and I see, DHCP Server service state is "Disabled" by default! Why?
I restart Core, but no changes. Certainly, after enable and start service, I configure the scope, activate and DHCP srv work fine.
Yes it is...
At first you have to authorize the server in AD
netsh dhcp add server FQDN_DHCP_Server_Name IP_DHCP_Server
After that you have to change the startup configuration like this:
sc config dhcpserver start= auto (mention the blank after the "start=" !!!)
now you are able to start the dhcpserver
net start dhcpserver
Control your configuration with net start...
After authorizing it in AD, and setting the service configuration to "auto" as stated above, for some reason the service will not start when I do, "net start dhcpserver". It fails with there errors,
A system error has occured
System error 50 has occured
The request is not supported.
I am logged in as Domain Admin, I even tried starting the service from the MMC -> Services on another computer, after connecting to the Server Core remotely.
Any idea whats missing ?
