DHCP Server assigning ‘169.254.*.* instead of domain name


Problem : I am trying to setup DHCP server on Server 2012, and when I create new DHCP server, the title is created as 169.254.. instead of the domain name. (Domain clients can retrieve IP’s as defined in the scope)

The first reason that causes such problems is this still a network card that is connected. Even if no physical connection, it receives IP 169.254.xx series and can cause such problems. As a solution you can disable IPv4 to this network card. Or you can delete this address using netsh
