    Hi ,

    How did you check the DHCP User Class ID are lost? Could you please clarify more details? You can check the DHCP class ID on the client with "ipconfig /showclassid *".

    NIC driver update clear the DHCP User Class ID?

    Did this affect on all clients or only on specific one?

    Can you reconfigure the classid on the client with ipconfig /setclassid command?

    Best Regards,

    Candy

    Hi,
    thanks for the reply.

    1. How did you check the DHCP User Class ID are lost? - Clients did not receive an IP address appropriate for the user class
    2. Could you please clarify more details? - See 1)
    3. You can check the DHCP class ID on the client with "ipconfig /showclassid *" - I have not tried
    4. Did this affect on all clients or only on specific one? - All clients
    5. Can you reconfigure the classid on the client with ipconfig /setclassid command? - Yes
      Best regards,
      Zoltan

    What's the Network Card model and driver version? If all clients are using same NIC Adapter and Driver Version, I would suspect this specific network card will filter out DHCP Users Class info.

    If possible , please test other brand of network cards to see if the same problem exists.
