DHCP - Manage Authorized servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just noticed that when I highlight DHCP then right click and select "Manage authorized servers" I get a list of the authorized DHCP servers on my Domain.  When I scrolled through the list I noticed 4 servers that are no longer in existence on our Domain.  I have highlighted these and tried Un-authorizing them but they stay listed when I scroll back in the list.  How can I get these 4 servers removed from the list?

  • Hi Francisco,

    Install ADSIEdit.msc

    - Add-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS-Tools

    - In ADSI. Connect to your configuration partition. Expand your services container and then netservices.

    - Youl will see all the authorised DHCP servers listed. Right click the ones you need to remove. Select the obsolete entries and select delete.

    Note: Do not remote DHCPRoot

    - If you try to manage authorised servers you will see those you deleted are now missing.

  • Hi Francisco,

    As Meyer mentioned, you could remove it by ADSIedit tools, and please check link below to understand it:
