How to configure DHCP on windows server 2016

  1. Go to ‘Virtual Network Editor’ and disable DHCP: click on ‘Change Settings’. You might choose the NAT type. Then uncheck ‘Use local DHCP service to distribute IP address to VMs’. If you don’t disable it, your DHCP server can’t distribute IP address. Instead the clients will receive their IP from the local DHCP under the ‘Virtual Network Editor’.
  2. After disabling the local DHCP, go to CMD on your client and type the following commands to see the result: ipconfig /release, then ipconfig /renew.
  3. Now you might not be able to ping the client from the server while you can ping the server from the client. So go to ‘Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings’ and ‘Turn on file and printer sharing’.
