I am running Win2k server and linksys router that is enabled for DHCP. Do i have to disable the DHCP server in Win2k even though there is no scope set for thr DHCp server. The win2k server also starts the DNS server at reboot. the tcp/ip settings on the win2k server is set for dynamic ip and dns. I want the router to assign tcp/ip to the client machines.
Questions:
1. Do i have to shutdown or uninstall DHCP server from the machine (Win2k server)???
2. Do i have to shutdown or uninstall DNS server from the machine (Win2k server)???
3. How do i resolve this issue????

I am gettting this error message in the event viewer.

You can remove DHCP from Windows 2K Server through control panel, add/remove programs.  In add/remove Windows components choose tcp/ip and you will then be given the option to remove DHCP.  You can also permantley remove DNS in this way.  I am presuming that this server is not going to act as a DNS server.

Do you have a DNS server that you connect to.  I.e on the Internet ?

To shut down the services, go into Control Panel, Administrative Tools, then double click Services.

Scroll down to DHCP Server and double click it.  Click Stop then change "Startup Type" to Disabled.

Repeat the steps for DNS Server in services.

You can also uninstall through Add/Remove windows components but as long as the services are stopped in Services it is not necessary and the error should not re-appear.

Of course, only disable the DNS Server service if you are not using DNS on the server.  Are your client computers using the server's IP address as their DNS server or using your ISP's DNS servers?

Also if you are using an Active Directory Domain on your network you can't disable DNS and should look to resolve the actual error message.

Don't bother you DNS services if you are running Active Directory. The DHCP without a scope is just fine. just make sure it does not have a scope.  Sounds like you have a RIP issue between Lynksys and Win 2k. Make sure RIP is enabled on Lynksys and that you have a true DCHP enabled not DHCP relay.

Yes, I am running Active Directory on the server machine. I dont have any separate DNS server. The client machines are using ISP's DNS servers.
Basically here are the setting for the following devices:

ServerWin2k: For the DHCP server no scope set up, dns server is running, on tcp/ip the setting is to pickup tcp/ip autmatically and also same thing for the DNS settings.

Router Linksys: DHCP is enabled, has all the tcp/ip, dns and gateway information of the WAN or ISP.

Client Machines: Tcp/ip setting are set to pickup automatically and also for dns setttings.

Maybe this will help...

Try adding the DNS address of your server in the TCP/IP settings and setup forwarders to your ISP's DNS servers.
