I've been trying to take the MS Command Line Tools lab, and have been having problems pinging. I'm using the Win10 virtual machine, and getting a DHCP error. I attempted to troubleshoot, by restarting the DHCP client both at the services.msc level and from the command line (net stop/net start dhcp), but I get an Access Denied message, although I'm on an Admin account. The ipconfig /renew does not work, as it throws a DHCP error. Any way to resolve this so I can run the commands?
