In the details pane, click DHCP Administrators.
On the Action menu, click Properties.
Click the Members tab, and then click Add.
The Select Users dialog box opens.
In Enter the object names to select, type the name of the user you want to add as a DHCP Administrator, and then click OK. To add multiple users in one operation, type user names separated by semicolons, and then click OK.

The DHCP Administrators group provides a way to grant limited administrative access to the DHCP server. Members of the DHCP Administrators group are granted the right to fully administer the applicable server using DHCP tools (the DHCP console and Netsh commands for DHCP); they do not have access to other services running on the server and are not able to perform other administrative actions on the server computer. For more information about DHCP groups, see Related Topics.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
