I've got a Windows Server 2008 running in VMWare player with the following roles:
- Active Directory Domain Services
The server is using the following credentials:
- The IP of the (DNS) server is
- The name of the domain is
I've also got a pc running in VMWare Player with Windows 7 on it.
For configuration on this machine:
- I set the IPv4 address (manually) to
- I set the DNS Server to (manually)
- I joined the
After this I was able to login with the users i've created in the active directory within the server.
This was also working.
When configurating the DHCP server I used the following settings:
- Scope name:
- Start IP address:
- End IP address:
- Subnet mask:
- 006 DNS Servers:
- 015 DNS Domain Name:
I wasn't receiving any errors while setting this up.
When I went back to the Windows 7 client PC and navigated to the screen where I could change my IPv4 settings and I activated the following checkboxes:
- Obtain an IP address automatically
- Obtain DNS server address automatically
I received an IPv4 address and default gateway from my router's DHCP service (which is outside of VMWare).
I want to receive an IPv4 address from the Windows server, within the range I set in the DHCP settings. I don't want to receive an default gateway, because i'm not expecting any internet access at this point.
Which settings do I have to change in VMWare (or anywhere else?) to achieve the result above.
