I've successfully installed the DHCP server role on my Windows Server 2008 R2. After configuring everything, DHCP is working just fine.

I can configure the DHCP server via Start -> Programs -> Administration -> DHCP. The problem I'm having is that the configuration of my DHCP doesn't show up in the server-manager.

Any ideas on why it's not showing the sever manager and how I can fix that?

  • Everything works well. Clients get an IP and their hostnames will be added to the DNS server. I just want to know, why the configurtion of my DHCP won't show up in the server-manager. – sascha Apr 12 '11 at 10:06
  • You need to edit your question, as it does not say that. – paradroid Apr 12 '11 at 10:08

Maybe the shortcut was not made when you installed the role, for some reason.

Try typing dhcpmgmt.msc into the Start Menu search box.

It should also be under Roles in Server Manager (ServerManager.msc).

  • Well, now it appears and works. Very strange, really. – sascha Apr 12 '11 at 10:42
