I made a domain name on serv1 computer with dc and dns roles. On serv2 pc i added it to the domain and added the role of dhcp with 1 scope and authorized it and it is working fine.

I created a new user name and added it to the DHCP Administrators Group (proof:, I am able to log in into serv2 with this account but when I open the dhcp console I am not able to see the scope and other options. Here is the image of dhcp when when i log in as account "".

It is a fresh setup on both pc hence not many changes are made, all of them are default.

Could you please tell me where I have gone wrong on this test bed.

User must be enrolled as member of DHCP admin group on that local machine too where DHCP role is to be administered.
