Section A: Configure clients to use the DHCP Server service

Follow these steps to configure the client computers in your environment to use the DHCP Server service for obtaining IP addresses from the Windows EBS Management Server.


Operating systems other than Microsoft Windows® operating systems can use the DHCP Server service. Consult your system documentation to determine how to set network interfaces to use the DHCP Server service to obtain IP addresses.

Perform the following steps on each Windows client computer.

To configure clients to obtain IP addresses from the Management Server

  1. In Control Panel, open Network Connections.

  2. Right-click the connection that corresponds to your organization’s LAN, and then click Properties.

  3. Depending on the Windows operating system on the client computer, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) or Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.

  4. On the General tab, verify that the Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically options are selected, and then click OK twice to close both dialog boxes.

  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for all the client computers on your network. Do not perform these steps on servers.
