Windows 2016 – DHCP server Name wrong

After migrating the DHCP server from one to the other I got a strange Server Name appearing in the DHCP Management Console ?


It just showed an IP address instead of the Server Name ?Confused smile


1. Close the DHCP Management snap-in

2. Go the Networks Adapters


Disable any Adapter you are not using !


Open the DHCP snap-in again, and you will see the problem is fixed.

You can enable the Adapter afterwards again no problem this settings will remain…
