    DHCP Error

    I had to shutdown my servers overnight while some power work was carried out. This morning one of the scopes on dhcp refuses to give out an ip address. When I do an All Tasks - restart service I get the error "The specified service does not exist as an install service" Anybody seen this before? I'll try a reboot tonight.

    Re: DHCP Error

    Did you change anything on the DHCP server before you shut it down?

    Do none of these fit the situation?


    Michael Trantas (Last update 4/26/2006):
    I had this error after applying Microsoft's Baseline Security Policy to my Domain Controller's OU. The DHCP server started, was authorized and the scope was activated but failed to assign IP addresses to the clients. To correct the problem, I disabled my secured domain controller group policy and reverted back to the Default Domain Controller Policy. Once I reverted, I forced a group policy update and tried again. If you still have the need to secure the Domain Controllers group policy, make changes one at a time and test after applying.

    Ionut Marin (Last update 6/21/2005):
    As per MSW2KDB, the DHCP server could not be authorized because no domain controller was found.

    Richard Bahcic (Last update 3/31/2004):
    We had this error while there was a domain controller booted that should not have been there. This old machine was installed weeks ago as the domain controller with the same domain name but then sorted out because of hardware problems. After this old DC was down, restarting the DHCP-Server resulted in a clean startup without any error. For hours there were 2 DC's there both with global catalogs, etc. but different security ids for the domain.
