DHCP Scope Configuration

Updated: December 11, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Before Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) clients can use a DHCP server for dynamic Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) configuration, you must define and activate scopes for your DHCP clients. A scope is the full, consecutive range of possible Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for a subnet. The IP addresses in a scope defines a single subnet on which DHCP services are offered. DHCP servers use scopes to manage network IP address distribution and the configuration of DHCP options.


Event ID Source Message



There were some orphaned entries deleted in the configuration due to the deletion of a class or an option definition. Please recheck the server configuration.
