Question about DHCP Reconciling.


  • Does Windows auto reconcile DHCP scopes or is this something I need to do manually?

  • I believe it's manual, although it goes without saying most things can be scripted and I suspect this would be no different. See the following TechNet.

    Let me know if I somehow misunderstood the question.

  • Hi,

    Just to add, DHCP reconciliation is a process in which you manually initiate the DHCP database consistency check. While reconciling, the DHCP server checks if the DHCP database is consistent with the Windows registry, and no errors or issues are present in the database.

    In addition,  the Enterprise Admin, Domain Admin or local administrator account credentials must be used while initializing the DHCP reconciliation process.

    Best regards,
