JSI Tip 0588 - Running Dhcploc.exe on a DHCP server may cause it to malfunction.


contains the Dhcploc.exe utility which is designed to assist in determining what Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol ( DHCP) servers are available to clients on a particular network segment. If you run Dhcploc.exe on a DHCP server, DHCP may no longer responds to all requests for IP addresses from DHCP clients.

Only run Dhcploc.exe on a computer that is not a DHCP server.
