I´m in currently in a trial with SBS2011 in VM on a similar wire to the production DHCP server. The CIW stops working when it sees DHCP which it believes is a router.
I am unable to deactivate DHCP in the production area but I have to in order to run through this CIW so I can evaluate the features of SBS.
Does anybody know of a way of fooling the registry into skipping the DHCP server?
Way of fooling the registry into skipping the DHCP server
It is possible but its way tricky somehow!
First of all define multiple blocks of IP addresses to get from.
So that you can provide exclusion addresses, ranges and even wildcards
Syntax can be written as,
One range per line, a. a. a. a-b. b. b. b
Optional exclusion list following in brackets
Excluded items are separated by comma
The excluded item may be a single address x.x.x.x,
Range x.x.x.x-y.y.y.y or a wildcarded address/range x.x.*.x-y.y.*.y
Now include DNS Domain Name (option 15) with the DHCP responses:
Hope that works!
