WDS client not getting DHCP RRS feed

  • Question

  • My WDS client is not getting a DHCP address from my 192.168.0.0 /24 scope i have on my DHCP server. Everything is configured fine as far as WDS and DHCP is concerned. I cant see the reason as to why its not working. The WDS client is a Hyper-V machine and is configured to obtain an address via DHCP through the legacy adapter (like i said, everything is set up fine).

    Every machine is on the same subnet whether its domain joined or non domain joined and the DHCP works because it has 2 leases at the moment which are 2 non domain joined phones in my house as. So it works, but the hyper-v machine that i'm trying to configure as a PXE client is still not picking up anything from the DHCP server. I'm not sure now why it is doing this. It just hangs on the DHCP part, on my DHCP server though it seems to give out a lease to the Hyper-V machine because when i refresh the lease screen the MAC address is on the leases and has an address but it still hangs on the DHCP screen and doesn't do anything else.

    Very confusing and frustrating.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi robbo777,

    1.Please make  sure that your External Virtual Network that the VM is attached to is on the correct physical subnet.
    If you need to build a VM and make sure it gets a proper DHCP address.

    2.Check that MAC Filtering is not turned on on the physical switch that above is patched in to.

    3.Disable TCP Offloading in the settings of the host physical NIC that the above External Virtual Network is using.
    (PXE needs a nice, smooth flow, TCP Offloading creates a bursty flow)

    4.Make sure to set the BIOS boot order in the VM settings.

    5.Make sure you just add the exact nic driver to the image.

    6.Check this link for Managing Network Boot Programs:

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I have screenshot of a wireshark capture from the interface as seen in the attached picture, it seems to get an address from the DHCP server on the domain controller (192.168.0.150) which is configured as one but the DHCP that's automatic on my router (192.168.0.1)seems to be sending one as well, something is making it conflicted by the looks of it, i cant seem to spot the problem? Would it be worth disabling the DHCP on the router?
