DHCP Console Icons Reference

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

DHCP provides context-specific icons to dynamically represent the state of console objects. Objects include the DHCP servers, clients, scopes, and option types that are used and managed in the console.

TipTip
This topic displays new DHCP console icons that were added for Windows Server® 2008 R2. To review console icons for Windows Server® 2008 and earlier operating systems, see the Windows Server 2003 DHCP console icons reference (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=213712).

Some of the icons used in DHCP have specific meanings, but most are used to communicate general status information about the current state of console objects. For example, when an icon is used with an hourglass superimposed, such as:

server03_32.png

This means that the console is attempting to connect to the server.

Likewise, when an icon is used with a red circle and a superimposed 'X', such as:

image002.png

This often means that DHCP has lost its connection to the server.

The following is a partial list of console icons used in DHCP.

 

Icon Description
server01_32.png

DHCP server added to console.

server04_32.png

DHCP server connected and active in console.

server06_32.png

DHCP server connected but not authorized in Active Directory for use on your network.

server08_32.png

DHCP server connected but current user does not have the administrative credentials to manage the server.

server02_32.png

DHCP server warning. Available addresses for server scopes are 90 percent or more leased and in use. This means that the server is nearly depleted of available addresses to lease to clients.

server09_32.png

DHCP server alert. No addresses are available from server scopes because the maximum (100 percent) of the addresses allocated for use are currently leased. This represents a failure of the DHCP server on the network because it is not able to lease or service clients.

 

Icon Description
supscp11_32.png

Scope or superscope is active.

supscp07_32.png

Scope or superscope is inactive.

supscp02_32.png

Scope or superscope warning. Scope warning: 90 percent or more of the scope's IP addresses are in use. Superscope warning: If any scope within the superscope has a warning, the superscope has a warning.

supscp06_32.png

Scope or superscope alert. Scope alert: All IP addresses have been allocated by the DHCP server and are in use. No more clients can obtain IP addresses from the DHCP server because it has no more IP addresses to allocate. Superscope alert: At least one scope contained in the superscope has all IP addresses allocated by the DHCP server. No clients can obtain an IP address from the range defined in the scope that is 100 percent allocated. If other scopes within the superscope contain available addresses, the DHCP server can allocate addresses from these scopes.
