  • I m getting "Access in denied" when I try to authorized a new DHCP scope on my new windows 2008 R2 standard server.

    I m using a domain admin account to create the new scope.

    how do I ensure that I can add the new dhcp scope for my clients ?

  • Hi,


    Please check if the DHCPserver and DHCPclient services are started. Do you use the Enterprise Administrator account? Do you want to authorize a DHCP Server in a child domain? If so, please check whether the following link helps:


    Access Is Denied When You Try to Authorize a DHCP Server in a Child Domain



    Did you attempt to migrate DHCP database from Windows 2003 server to Windows 2008 server previously? Please also check whether the following link helps:


    After a new DHCP server is authorized, the original DHCP server becomes unauthorized and cannot be authorized again in Windows 2000 Server

  • the new sever is acting as a secondary dns server and dhcp server for a new site office.

    its running on windows 2008 r2 standard 64bit.

    the dhcp score is for the new site office local domain users.

    i have tried using enterprise domain account to authorize the scope. but i m still getting access is denied.

    i also encounter another error message - unable to contact Active Directory.
