    • (May 03, 2013) Microsoft has released KB2459530. This update addresses and issue where Windows 7 clients experience a three to five second delay in obtaining an IP address through Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) at restart. This behavior occurs when the clients are DHCP-enabled and domain-joined. This results in Netlogon event ID 5719 and Group Policy event ID 1129. You may experience this issue if the Windows 7 DHCP client is communicating with a Microsoft Windows-based DHCP Server through a non-Microsoft Relay Agent, such as a Layer 3 network switch.

     

            DHCP-Client Operational logs, if it is enabled, will record event ID 50024 at restart time. This indicates that a DHCP Request time-out occurred.

            The issue does not occur if the Windows 7 DHCP client communicates with a Microsoft Windows DHCP Server through a Microsoft relay agent.

            A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft. However, this hotfix is intended to correct only the problem that is described in this article. Apply this hotfix only to systems that are experiencing the problem described in this article. This hotfix might receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, it is recommended that you wait for the next software update that contains this hotfix.
