Cannot assign IP address to server core

    I am trying to use Windows (7) VPC with 2 VMs – one Windows Server 2008 Server Core Ent. x86 and the other Windows Server 2008 Server Ent. x86 configured as a DHCP server.

    Both of the VMs are configured for Internal Network. Both servers are in a workgroup. Static IPs were assigned to both and I could get them to ping each other until after I changed the firewall settings on the Server Core (per one of Petri’s articles).

    I still cannot get the DHCP server to assign the Server Core an IP address.

    This is not for a production environment, but for a learning envirionment.

    I have also tried to do this in VirtualBox and Hyper-V with the same result so I am inclined to think there is something that I need to do in server core to allow it to get an IP address from the DHCP server. I cannot figure out what.

    Any input will be appreciated.
