Enabling Server-side Conflict-Detection

Server-side conflict-detection consists of the DHCP server pinging an address in its scope before allocating it to a requesting client. The ping request must fail for the DHCP server to proceed and give the client an IP lease, so the more pings that are configured, the longer the lease process will take. Each ping takes approximately a second. If the ping is successful, the DHCP server selects another address and attempts to ping it before allocating it to a client. To set up conflict-detection, do the following:

  1. Right-click the server in the DHCP console and choose Properties from the fly-out menu.

  2. Click the Advanced tab.

  3. Set Conflict detection attempts to a number greater than 0 (a number higher than 2 is not advised).

  4. Click OK.
