Remove a DHCP Multicast Scope

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can use this procedure to remove a multicast scope.

Membership in the Administrators or DHCP Administrators group is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To remove a multicast scope

  1. Open DHCP.

  2. In the console tree, click the applicable multicast scope.

  3. On the Action menu, click Delete.

  4. When prompted, click Yes to remove the multicast scope.

Additional considerations

Removing a multicast scope does not necessarily stop the use of multicast groups associated with scope addresses on your network.

If computers on your network are configured by means other than DHCP to use these same addresses, the multicast group might still be used even after this procedure has been performed.
