You need to have an Active Directory domain in place. I’m picking up where I left off in my previous blog article Use PowerShell to Create a New Active Directory Forest on Windows 2019 Server Core Installation (no-GUI). The procedure shown in this blog article is for demonstration purposes only. Install the DHCP server feature. Install-WindowsFeature -Name DHCP Add the DHCP scope to the server. Add-DhcpServerv4Scope -Name '192.168.129.x' -StartRange 192.

Using PowerShell to Investigate Duplicate IP Address Issues that were issued from a Microsoft based DHCP Server

Over the past couple of weeks, you’ve received several support calls about duplicate IP Address issues from users whose machines receive their IP Address from your organizations internal Microsoft based DHCP Servers. The users who reported the issues use thin clients and when the IP Address conflicts occur they receive a popup message containing their IP Address and the MAC Address of the machine that duplicated the IP Address. You and your staff need to retrieve additional information about the IP Address and MAC Address that the users received in order to try to determine what’s causing the problem.
