DHCP (Multi Holmed)

In order for the DHPC binding to be set eech adapter must have only one IP address and it must be static.


Windows server 2012 applies an AutoConfiguration APIPA address as an additional IP. This needs to be disabled to see the Bindings in the DHCP console for additional NICs



the Autoconfiguration belongs to APIPA which is only used if a DHCP server is not available(if enabled) or NO fixed ip address is configured, which you did.

So what problem do you have if it is enabled? Anyway, check this option:

This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.

Disable APIPA on All but One Network Adapter

  1. Use Registry Editor to create the following registry key, where <var>adapter name</var> is the name of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) configured adapter where you want to disable APIPA:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\<var>adapter name</var>

  1. Add the following value to this key:

Value name: IPAutoconfigurationEnabled
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value in hexadecimal: 0 (A value of 0 disables APIPA support on this adapter)

NOTE: If the IPAutoconfigurationEnabled entry is not present, a default value of 1 is assumed, which indicates that APIPA is enabled.

  1. After you make this change, restart your computer.
