DHCP wont authorize 'says access denied' on win 2003 server

I have recently upgraded two of our servers in different sites from Nt to 2003 server but i get the following error on them both :
When i go to Dhcp Manager and
select dhcp
and right click and select authorize
it says 'access denied'
I am loged on as administrator and i am also a member of enterpirse admins which i belive can also come up with the same error if not a memeber.
Can any one help?
Cheers
Rick

I guess the only solution is to uninstall the dhcp service and then install it again.

crissandCommented:
Could be related to other problems. What is the error in the error logs?

Is there active directory?

Do you have another dhcp server in Active directory?

Do you have other Windows NT servers with dhcp service installed and running?

If this is the first server in your domain you must install it on a domain controller. But the diagnostics must be done using the exact error messages, since it seems to be related to the whole Active directory. The message and the event id  could be helpful.

The AMDEide error is related to harware resources, some driver fail to load, probably referenced to chipset.

The server is the PDC Emulator. What is it's address? The address must be fixed, and in the same network as the dhcp server, but not in the scope.

RickceeAuthor Commented:
its 192.168.1.2

crissandCommented:
And the scope?

RickceeAuthor Commented:

I'm afraid you don't have a fsmo role in the domain where the dhcp server must be authorized. Verify the fsmo roles.

You must be a member of the Enterprise Admin group to authorize your DHCP services,
