This is for non-Windows 2000 clients.  Windows 2000 and greater client will
be able to modify their DNS records.  This group allows the DHCP server to
update WINS and DNS (if configured to) automatically on half of the client
that cannot do this.

I have been studying for my upgrade on 2003 and there was some talk about a
new group that the dhcp service account has to belong to when updating the
DNS record for clients that can't do the update themselves.  If not included
in this group then the user won't have the ability to expire the dns record.
So not sure if this is related but it is a shot.  The group name was
something like dhcpproxyupdate.

Hope this helps.


Thanks
 
Paul

I've posted this before but I wanted to try one more time.  Currently we are
running into an issue with our DHCP Server (Windows 2003 Enterprise. Server)
that will not issue an IP address to any thin client, laptop, or pc if it
already has a lease on another scope.  You can do the release and renew
thing all day long but the DHCP server will not assign an IP until the lease
for the PC is deleted from the scope that it last got an IP address from.
I've never seen this problem before until I started working on this server.
Is this new in Windows 2003 Server?  It sounds like a security setting or
something.
