Q. The DHCP scope settings disappear on Windows Server 2003?

When the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) service is running on Windows Server 2003, the DHCP scope settings disappear.

This behavior will occur when Dhcpmgmt.msc, the (DHCP Management utility), finds a reservation and the reservation uses an address in the same address range as the scope.

To workaround this problem, remove the reservation from the scope.
