Home Domain

Hey guys,

I've configured a laptop as my home domain "domain1.local". It is running DNS, DHCP, AD. I have configured all roles correctly and I have connected the DC to a unmanage Dell PowerConnect switch.
I have my client which is windows 7 Pro connected to the switch as well. However, it is unable to acquire a valid IP address from my DHCP. I've checked the DHCP logs and all seems fine. The scope is authorize and activated.

    Can you ping going in both directions? If you statically assign an addy to the laptop can you ping?

    Need far more info to be able to tell you whats wrong.

    Is the Windows 7 machine a VM? If it is, what kind of networking do you have configured? Is it joined to the domain?
    NSX, NSX, more NSX..

    After some trial and error, I noticed RRAS was enabled. I stopped it and the laptop acquire an IP.

    I have no Vm's, just 2 physical laptops. Client1 isn't joined to the domain.
