Hi, I am still newbie in networking system. i have 2 operating systems Window XP 2003 server enterprise edition and window XP pro edition installed on virtualbox machine. The IP on XP 2003 server is 192.168.8.30. i set up the DNS server and new domain, new user (Test) then i set up the DHCP and defined the IP address range from 10.10.10.10 to 10.10.10.30 on XP server 2003. then i login successfully on my window xp pro by selecting the username "Test" and the domain which i have created. But i got confused when i check the ipconfig on xp pro which give me an ip: 192.168.8.32 as still the same as before and didnt get an ip from the range between 10.10.10.10 till 10.10.10.30.  My question is that the IP should be between the range mentioned above from 10.10.10.10 to 10.10.10.30 and not 192.168.8.32. what can i do to make the XP pro take automatically an IP from the range between 10.10.10.10 and 10.10.10.30. Thanks in advance

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

On XP, type:
<b>ipconfig /all</b>
What is the line for DHCP server?
It should be the correct IP address of your DHCP server, which is 192.168.8.30. If it is, then you did not configure your DHCP server correctly. Your DHCP server needs to be giving out IP address in the same range as your DC, if not, then you need a router or static routes or both setup

    Thanks a lot for your reply. You are right, first the DHCP server IP was giving me another Ip 192.168.8.253. after i just disable the DHCP from services, and start it up again, then gave me 192.168.8.30. i have no idea if these are the steps which change the IP of the DHCP server. Now i setup the scope between 192.168.8.100 and 192.168.8.150. Everything is okay, on my XP took automatically 192.168.8.100. So, if i need to have a scope between 10.10.10.10 and 10.10.10.50, i need to have another router?

    Using the correct terminology would help you get more accurate answers. An XP home machine can join the network, but cannot join a domain (at least not without some hacking)
