I have a problem with Configuring DHCP Reservations:

in the client, ipconfig: Address Leases is:


then in the client computer: ipconfig /release

but when i config the Reservations with the fix IP address is: in the sever computer (throught vmnet1) and in the client computer: ipconfig /renew ... it's not work: the address lease is still always!


Someone help me!

Many Thanks!

  • Is your client set up for dhcp? I know it sounds dumb, but no harm in checking. – Sagar Aug 24 '10 at 14:23

Are you using bridged or NAT networking in your guest? If your DHCP server is on a separate machine/network to the guest you'll need to use bridged networking.

  • the exercise required Host-only! – Fri13th May 5 '10 at 9:22
  • Host only should also work for that. You don't have to have bridged if your client and server are on the same vmnet – Sagar Aug 24 '10 at 14:21
