DHCP – Disable Rogue Server Detection

DHCP – Disable Rogue Server Detection
February 3, 2019 No Comments eduSTAR.Integrated Resources, Servers - Windows James

Frequently I find myself setting up a Windows Server running DHCP that can not be bound to the domain for various reasons. As such when you install and activate DHCP on the network it attempts to authenticate with the Domain.

To bypass this there is a registry key that you can put in place on the server which will disable the “rogue server detection”.

Step 1

Add the below Registry Key to the Server:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCPServer\Parameters]
"DisableRogueDetection"=dword:00000001

Step 2

Reboot the Server and then you will be able to active the DHCP Server on the Network.

The relevant links which I used to put together this guide are;

I enjoy learning new skills in networking, routing and advanced server management while furthering my knowledge in cloud technology. In 2017 I worked as a part of the Cloud Adoption Team which undertook important work to increase the adoption of cloud technologies in schools. Through this time and in my current position, I have been fortunate to work with a number of highly skilled educational leaders who have lighted the path for my future and shown me another side of IT. My passion and my secret weapon is the ability to take a site with extremely poor IT performance and turn them (often overnight) into a transformative environment which supports Teaching, Learning and above all else Innovation.
