You administer a network that consists of 75 computers running Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Professional, and Windows 2000 Professional. All client computers are located on the same network segment. All servers are assigned static IP addresses from the range of 192.168.0.0/24. Routing occurs only between the internal network and the Internet. All client computers are configured to receive IP addresses from a single DHCP server. No backup DHCP server exists on your network. The client computers are not configured with an alternate static IP address configuration. The DHCP server fails. What will happen to the computers on your network after the IP address leases expire?



A. All of the client computers will no longer be configured with an IP address and will no longer be able to communicate with one another.
B. All of the client computers will keep the IP addresses that were originally leased to them until the DHCP server comes back online.
C. All of the client computers will assign themselves new IP addresses and will be able to communicate with one another, but they will not be able to communicate with the servers.
D. All of the client computers will assign themselves new IP addresses and will be able to communicate with one another and with the servers.

All of the client computers will assign themselves new ip addresses and will be able to communicate with one another, but they will not be able to communicate with the servers.-explanation: all of the client computers will assign themselves new ip addresses and will be able to communicate with one another, but they will not be able to communicate with the servers. dhcp client computers that run windows server 2003, windows xp, windows 2000, windows me or windows 98 can use automatic private ip addressing (apipa) to assign themselves ip addresses. if a dhcp server cannot be contacted to renew an ip address lease, then the ip address is released when the lease expires. windows server 2003 and windows xp computers support an alternate static tcp/ip configuration. if no alternate static configuration has been specified, then those computers that can use apipa will assign themselves new ip addresses in the range of 169.254.0.0/16. those computers will be able to communicate with each other only within the same network segment because apipa addresses are not routable. the client computers in this scenario will not be able to communicate with the servers because the servers are assigned static ip addresses in a different subnet range, and the one router on the network is configured to only route traffic between the 192.168.0.0/24 subnet and the internet. when the dhcp server comes back online, the computers that receive their ip addresses dynamically will receive new leases from the dhcp server. you can verify the ip address that has been assigned to a computer by issuing the ipconfig /all command from a command prompt. to view the addresses that are leased on your network, use the address leases node for the particular scope in the dhcp console.
