Thanks Mike and Dmitri,

As to Mike reply…  I’ve disabled the firewall completely, no help. I’ve also 
set a static IP (with the one the DHCP server is offering) and I am able to ssh 
from the management node to the vm.

As to Dmitri’s reply… I’ve checked out that KB article and added those entries 
to the registry. No help.  There is no Relay Agent being used. The DHCP server 
is the same subnet as the management node.

Does anyone else have any other suggestions? How many of us are running Windows 
7 VMs with VMWare Server 2.x?

Thanks,
Adam

Subject: Re: Windows 7 and DHCP

Hi

I have the same issue with DHCP, which seems to only affect Win 7 (32 and 64). 
Linux and XP work OK.

I've disabled dhcp broadcast flag (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233) on 
both private and public interface on Win 7 image.
Since then I get a lot less DHCP errors on Win 7 reservations, but still get 
few once in a while.

Looking at my dhcpd logs files it seems like Win 7 doesn't not accept DHCPOFFER 
- I see multiple requests from Win 7, but it never gets IP address. Even when I 
manually run ipconfig /release, /renew.

Where is your DHCP server located?
Is it on the same subnet/broadcast domain or you have DHCP Relay agent on your 
subnet to communicate with DHCP server?

Thanks.

Hi Adam,

Not to jump to the goofy, but could the Windows firewall be blocking it?

Also, if you hand-assign an appropriate IP (disable DHCP on the adapter) can 
Windows communicate properly on the interface?

Regards,
Mike

Hi,



We’re having a similar issue that’s been noted on the list before but I can’t 
seem to find if it was ever resolved. Here’s a link to the archives where it 
was discussed. 
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-vcl-user/201104.mbox/%3C4DB59638.5000609%40ncsu.edu%3E



Anyway,



I have a Windows 7 base image (not captured yet). Both network interfaces are 
set to DHCP. The public interface successfully grabs an IP address but the 
private interface does not. All it does is assign on auto-configuration address 
(169.254.x.x).



We’ve tried the recommendation in the email message I linked to. Here’s what I 
see in the messages log:

(note: I’ve changed the actual IP address offered to x.x.x.x – a real IP was 
offered).
