JSI Tip 5915. The Microsoft Management Console (MMC) does NOT recognize a new DHCP server?

When you configure a new Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server in your Windows 2000 domain, the MMC displays a message indicating that your DHCP server is not authorized in Active Directory?

After configuring a DHCP server, it may take 30 seconds or longer to update Active Directory.

To workaround this feature, wait 30 seconds and press F5 to refresh the MMC.
