Microsoft Corp.: There is a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) problem with Windows 2000 Professional, Server, and Advanced Server clients. The clients might not be able to get IP addresses from non-DHCP servers if those servers do not recognize dynamic DNS update option 81. Although there is a Registry setting to disable the option, Microsoft says the setting does not work. The company is testing a fix, which will be in a future service pack. If you do not want to wait, ask Microsoft Technical Support for 05/18/2000 07:35p 5.0.2195.2096 87,312 Dhcpcsvc.dll.
