DHCP providing wrong subnet for XP

July 17, 2010 at 11:58:03
Specs: Windows 7
Hey all,

I have Server 2008 running DHCP. It dishes out
IPs to Win7/Vista clients fine, however all my
XP clients do get a correct IP, but they get an
incorrect subnet. All the vista/7 clients get the
subnet 255.255.255.0, but the XP ones receive
255.255.255.1

Any ideas what is wrong?

Is there any other device, running DHCP service, like a router or another server?

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

No. All routers/capable devices have DHCP turned off. The only DHCP server enabled is the Windows Server one.

brad82 you either setup a bad scope in the ms dhcp server or you have another device on the network providing dhcp.

Disable dhcp on the server and reboot a xp box. Does it get a ip?

Perhaps this will help [dhcp ping]

I am 100% sure that there is no other DHCP service running on the network (I have tried the solution posted above as a standard debug test).

Your explaination wasn't clear.

Are you saying the xp machine did NOT get a ip address when you disabled your dhcp server?

So it got a 169.254.x.x ip?

Did you setup ipv4 and ipv6 scopes?

Post the results of a ipconfig /all when the workstation is getting the wrong ip
