Are the hosts requiring a reply from the DHCP server on the same IP subnet? DHCP requests are broadcast so if the DHCP server is on another subnet the request will never get there.

 

Configure IP helper

Are any problems or attempts recorded in either the dhcp event logs or the workstation? if you configure a static address on the workstation can you ping the dhcp server.

 

Try the obvious first!

Please be a little more clear.

 

What is host system?

 

Assume you are NOT trying to give the host a DHCP address from a VM sharing the same NIC. That won't work. There are ways around that if you have multiple NICs; but that's a VERY unusual config and not recommended or supported.

 

Also, "in real life", servers don't use DHCP, they are assigned fixed and managed IP addresses.

 

Lots of great advice at "http://www.xtravirt.com"...

try setting a manual static ip address on your Windows 7 client (is this client a virtual or physical machine) then try pinging the DHCP server? Do you get a reply or not?
