Two DHCP leases are created for each domain controller when you use the VDC cloning feature
- You are using the virtualized domain controller (VDC) cloning feature that was introduced in Windows Server 2012.
- As part of your deployments, you implement Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Therefore, cloned domain controllers automatically lease IP addresses when those domain controllers are created.
- Cloning finishes on each domain controller.
In this scenario, you notice that two IP addresses are leased from the DHCP server for each cloned domain controller.
Note Only the more recent lease is used by the cloned domain controllers.
