DHCP Role On Windows 2019 Core

To set up Windows server 2019 use the Step By Step Installation Of Windows Server 2019 Standard.
 
I have created a Windows core server named TM_DHCP. The below image is showing the Server configuration. To open the server configuration use the “Sconfig” command in PowerShell. The server is already part of the test domain.

First, we will install DHCP using the windows admin Center. I have added that to Windows Admin Center for easy management.

Under Roles and Feature, select DHCP and click install.

Once the checks complete, it will start installing the DHCP role on the server.

Authorize the DHCP server in Active Directory using “add-DhcpServerInDC” command.
 
Add-DhcpServerInDC -DnsName TM-DHCP.Domain.com -IPAddress 10.0.64.7

Use Get-DHcpServerInDc to verify the DHCP server authorized in Active Directory.

To assign IP to the requesting system, we now have to create Scope. With the scope, we will also configure the DHCP options like DHCP Exclusion range, Default gateway, DNS server IP address, and DNS domain name.
 
Add-DhcpServerv4Scope -name "Internal" -StartRange 10.0.64.1 -EndRange 10.0.64.254 -SubnetMask 255.255.255.0 -State Active

To test the new DHCP server, I used two different systems, Windows Core and Windows 10 for the IP assignment using the newly-created DHCP server.
