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 in the console.
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 console objects. For example, when an icon is used with an hourglass superimposed, such as:
clip_image001
This 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
This often means that DHCP has lost its connection to the server.
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 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 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 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 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 Folder containing the list of server options.
clip_image014 Server option.
clip_image015 Folder containing the list of scope options.
clip_image016 Scope option.
clip_image017 Reservation option.


Lease-related icons

Icon Description
clip_image018 Folder containing the list of active leases.
clip_image019 Active lease: this address is not available for lease by the DHCP server.
clip_image020 Expired lease: this address is available for lease by the DHCP server.
clip_image021 Active lease, DNS dynamic update pending. This address is not available for lease by the DHCP server.
clip_image022 Active reservation lease: this address is an active lease on a reserved IP address. This IP address is not available for lease by the DHCP server.
