After rebuilding our DHCP server our helpdesk staff told me they could no longer view it with RSAT. All they see is a red error.
When you install the DHCP role on the server 2 new groups are created in Local User and Groups setting on the server. We just need to add our security group to allow them access.
How to add a security group to DHCP Users
Click on start and search for Edit Local users and groups.
Select Groups and you’ll notice 2 new ones after DHCP role was installed.
- DHCP Administrators – Members who have administrative access to the DHCP Service
- DHCP Users – Members who have view-only access to the DHCP service
For helpdesk I’ll add them to the DHCP Users group so they can only view it. I don’t want them making changes.
I’ve added TECH-STAFF (my helpdesk group) to the DHCP Users group and they’re now able to connect to view the leases.
