Event ID 1010

Looking through the Technet, Event ID 1010 refers to Winnt 3.5x.  We are running Winnt 4.0 w/sp4 on a compaq R3000 PDC and alike BDC and receiving the following error in the event viewer - The DHCP server encountered the following error when cleaning up the user database: "The system cannot find the file specified".  Technet refers to the System.mdb (DHCP DATABASE)which in 4.0 I believe is now called DHCP.mdb stating that it has moved and now cannot find the the file.  We have not moved it, yet event viewer is returning this error???? Lost/Help.  We also experience logon difficulties, where the domain server cannot be found, when logging on new systems, (Not getting an IP address), but assigning a static address works fine.  I'm thinking corrupted DHCP database, Any clues????  Sorry about the points, I just joined and can't afford to use them all in one day.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I guess the backup was corrupt also.  We ended up putting the DHCP on the BDC and deleted the DHCP service on the PDC.  We then reinstalled the service on PDC and split the addresses between the two. 75% & 25%.  Thanks for the help it seems like a good idea, but didn't work for us this time.  I couldn't find that PSS before you gave it to me, great information thanks!
