    Hi,

    In regards to your issue, here're my suggestions:

    I want to confirm that do you want to deploy a DHCP server in Windows Server 2008 R2 on VMWare Workstation? And the data listed is the specific configurations of your DHCP server?

    If that is your situation, please refer to the following link to install:
    (1)Installing Windows Server 2008 inside VMware Workstation:

    (2)How to Set Up DHCP in Windows Server 2008 R2

    -------If my answer is helpful to you, please remember to mark them as answer. Thank you!------

    Regards
