Event ID 1144 — DHCP Service Initialization
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
When the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server service initializes, it checks for proper configuration of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), including the presence of a static IP address. Successful initialization results when the DHCP server has established network communication by using TCP/IP.
|Product:||Windows Operating System|
|Message:||This computer has at least one dynamically assigned IP address. For reliable DHCP server operation, you should use only static IP addresses.|
Configure a static IP address for the DHCP server
To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.
To configure TCP/IP for static addressing:
- At the DHCP server computer, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Network and Sharing Center, and then click Manage network connections.
- Right-click the network connection you want to configure, and then click Properties.
- On the Networking tab, click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.
- Click Use the following IP address, and then type the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
- Click Use the following DNS server addresses.
- In Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server, type the primary and secondary DNS server addresses.
To verify that clients are getting leased IP addresses from the DHCP server:
- At the DHCP-enabled client computer, click Start, in Start Search type cmd, and then press ENTER.
- To verify the lease of the client with a DHCP server, type ipconfig /all to view lease-status information.
- In the output of ipconfig /all verify that the DHCP Server address matches the address of the expected DHCP server. If the address belongs to a different DHCP server than expected, the expected server might not have initialized and another available DHCP server has provided the lease.
