DHCP console icons reference
DHCP provides context-specific icons to dynamically represent the state of console objects. Objects include the DHCP servers, clients, scopes, and option types that are used and managed for each server.
General usage of console icons
Some of the icons used in DHCP have specific meanings, but most are used to communicate general status information about the current state of the console. For example, when an icon is used with an hourglass superimposed, such as:
clip_image001
it means that the console is attempting to connect to the server.
Likewise, when an icon is used with a red circle and a superimposed ‘X’, such as:
clip_image002[4]
it often means that DHCP has lost its connection to the server.
Glossary of specific icons
The following is a partial list of console icons used in DHCP.

Server-related icons

Icon Description
clip_image003 DHCP server added to console.
clip_image004 DHCP server connected and active in console.
clip_image005 DHCP server connected but not authorized in Active Directory for use on your network.
clip_image006[4] DHCP server connected but current user does not have the administrative credentials to manage the server.
clip_image007 DHCP server warning. Available addresses for server scopes are 90 percent or more leased and in use. This means that the server is nearly depleted of available addresses to lease to clients.
clip_image008[4] DHCP server alert. No addresses are available from server scopes because the maximum (100 percent) of the addresses allocated for use are currently leased. This represents a failure of the DHCP server on the network because it is not able to lease or service clients.


Scope-related icons

Icon Description
clip_image009 Scope or superscope is active.
clip_image010[4] Scope or superscope is inactive.
clip_image011 Scope or superscope warning. Scope warning: 90 percent or more of the scope’s IP addresses are in use. Superscope warning: If any scope within the superscope has a warning, the superscope has a warning.
clip_image012[4] Scope or superscope alert. Scope alert: All IP addresses have been allocated by the DHCP server and are in use. No more clients can obtain IP addresses from the DHCP server because it has no more IP addresses to allocate. Superscope alert: At least one scope contained in the superscope has all IP addresses allocated by the DHCP server. No clients can obtain an IP address from the range defined in the scope that is 100 percent allocated. If other scopes within the superscope contain available addresses, the DHCP server can allocate addresses from these scopes.


Option-related icons

Icon Description
clip_image013 Server options folder.
clip_image014[4] Server option.
clip_image015 Scope options folder.
clip_image016[4] Scope option.
clip_image017 Reservation option.


Other console icons

Icon Description
clip_image018[4] Root of the DHCP console.
clip_image019 Address pool folder.
clip_image020[4] Scope allocation range. Addresses in this range are allocated to the available address pool used to offer leases to clients.
clip_image021 Scope exclusion range. Addresses in this range are excluded from the available address pool used to offer leases to clients.
clip_image022[4] Active leases folder.
clip_image023 Active lease: this address is not available for lease by the DHCP server.
clip_image024[4] Expired lease: this address is available for lease by the DHCP server.
clip_image025 Active lease, DNS dynamic update pending. This address is not available for lease by the DHCP server.
clip_image026[4] Client is using dial-up network connection through a remote access server.
clip_image027 An individual reservation and the reservations folder.
clip_image028[4] Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) table.
clip_image029 BOOTP entry in the table.

Accessing a Motorola RFS6000

To access a Motorola RFS6000 you will need to install Java 1.4.  This may be difficult to find, however it can be found on the archive pages (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javasebusiness/downloads/java-archive-downloads-javase14-419411.html) of Oracle’s website, however you may need an account to access the actual download.

I installed version 1.4.2.19.

Opening the RFS6000 web interface, you may be prompted with a security certificate warning.  In this case, click Yes (or Always if you wish).  The certificate expired in 2011!

Once the applet has loaded, you can enter the default username / password:
admin
superuser
