How to configure the DHCP server
Basically, it takes three steps to successfully configure a DHCP server.
Add the DHCP role
Set up a new scope and scope options
Authorize the DHCP server
And make sure the computer is assigned at least one static IP address before starting the role installation.
Add the DHCP role
Before processing, the first thing we need to do is add the DHCP role to the server. To do this, open Server Manager, select Add Roles and Features.
Now on the next screen Select Role Based Installation Role Based Installation and select Next. On the server selection page, your current server should already be selected; otherwise, select the server you want to work with in SERVER POOL, and then click Next. Now on the Select Server Roles page, select the DHCP Server check box.
In the Add Roles and Features Wizard, click Add Features, and then click Next. On the Select Features page, do not make any selections, click Next. Also click Next on the DHCP Server page. Now on the setup and installation selection progress page, wait until the installation is successful. This will take some time to complete.
Full DHCP configuration
The last page of the wizard (which appears after the role has been installed) provides a link: “Complete DHCP Configuration.” This provides some tasks that must be performed to allow the DHCP server role to function properly after the role is installed. Click on it. Launch the DHCP Post Installation Wizard and complete the necessary steps.
Creation of DHCP security groups (DHCP administrators and DHCP users). For these security groups to be effective, the DHCP server service must be restarted. This will have to be done separately by the administrator. Click Next.
DHCP server authorization in Active Directory (only in case of joint domain configuration). In a domain joined environment, only after the DHCP server is authorized will it start serving requests from the DHCP client. DHCP server authorization can only be performed by a domain user who has permissions to create objects in the Net services container in Active Directory.
Now click close to complete the roll installation.
Configure the DHCP server
In case the post-installation step is not completed after the role installation, the administrator will continue to see a notification in the action pane and also a link in the DHCP role tile on the main page of Server Manager that suggests that some configuration is required. That link would disappear only after completing the post-installation task.
Now in Server Manager Click on DHCP shown below in Control Panel.
Now select your server and right click on it here, it will show the DHCP Manager option. select option
Create new scope
In the open DHCP snap-in, from the left pane, expand the server name.
From the displayed tree, right-click IPv4 and click New Scope.
When the New Scope Wizard dialog box appears, click Next.
On the Scope Name screen, enter the name of your new scope. You must give it a description to document its purpose. When done, click Next.
On the IP Address Range screen, enter a starting IP address followed by an ending IP address. This creates the scope range, which will be used to assign addresses to clients.
In the Configuration Settings that Propagate to the DHCP Client section of the IP Address Range screen, enter a subnet bit length (CIDR) in the Length field or enter the dotted decimal notation of the subnet mask. For example: I am assigning from 192.168.1.110 to 192.168.1.200 a total of 90 addresses. Now click next.
In the Add Exclusions and Delay window, leave everything as the default and click Next. Now in the Lease Duration window, leave the default settings intact for now and click Next.
In the Configure DHCP Options window, make sure Yes, I want to configure these options now, the radio button is selected, and click Next.
Now in the Router (default gateway) window, in the IP address field, type the IP address of the router that is used as the default gateway for the local network and click Add to add the address to the list .

A DHCP reservation is a given IP address within a scope that is reserved for leasing to a specific DHCP client. DHCP reservation ensures that the IP addresses that you reserve from a configured range are not leased to any other device on the network. A DHCP reservation also ensures that reserved devices have your IP address, even if a scope runs out of available IP addresses. The device’s network interface media access control (MAC) address or physical address is required to configure a reservation. If the customer is already leasing an IP address from a Windows Server 2012 DHCP server, their MAC address will be available from the DHCP management console.
Let’s see how to reserve any IP for a particular machine
In the DHCP console, from the left tree view, expand the scope to which you want to add reservations.
Select and then right-click Reservations. When the context menu appears, click New Booking
Give the reservation a name. You should probably use the hostname of the server you are reserving the address for. Assign the IP address.
Enter the MAC address of the server’s network interface.
Document the purpose of the reservation by entering a description.
Under Media Types, select Both, DHCP or BOOTP.
