I think I may be mssing something simple, but here is my setup and problem.
I have a Windows 2003 server w/active directory, DNS, and DHCP configured. The server is connected into a cheap D-Link switch. I have one Windows XP workstation also plugged into the switch. My goal is to have the server give the workstation an IP address and then add the workstation to the domain.
The problem: the workstation never is assigned an IP address. I checked the DCHP statistics and it does not even get a request. All the stats say 0. I setup a Scope.
If I configure the workstation with a static IP address that is on the same network as the server, I can ping both ways, but I get an DNS type error when I try to join the domain. The error is a DNS timed out error when looking for the controller of the domain.
I authorized the DHCP and DNS server. I tried adding the workstation to active directory. I can't get the workstation to get an IP address. If I connet the workstation to our normal network, it will get an IP address fine.
