You need to provide a little more info about this issue.
- Do you have free leases to allocate in the scope this specific client is in? (Check event log on the server to see if there is any messages related)
- Do you have some kind of MAC address filtering in place (<a href=”http://blogs.technet.com/b/teamdhcp/archive/2007/10/03/dhcp-server-callout-dll-for-mac-address-based-filtering.aspx”>DHCP Sever Callout DLL</a>)? Since Windows Server 2003 in possible to install a DLL to filter DHCP requests based on MAC address.
- From my experience, it is also possible that an old, corrupted NIC driver can lead to this: a client unable to be delivered an IP address. Check if your NIC drivers are latest version available.
Hope this helps to find whats happening.
