I recently installed a Win2K3 member server into a Win2K controlled domain. I have a static IP set but am getting an annoying DHCP error similar to a previous thread: DHCP Client service, Access is denied. on the new member server. I disabled the DHCP client service on the new server, and am not getting errors,but may one day want to allow the machine to use DHCP. The previous thread had the following solution..
The solution was as follows:
My problem was solved by granting the network services account full control to the
hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\tpip registry keys on the updated server.
Although I realize this is a reg hack and doesn't really explain why the error occurs, I would like to get rid of the pesky errors in the event log when I enable DHCP client.
OK, so my question is -- to accomplish this, do I just need to add a new
string value: Object name
Value data: NT AUTHORITY\Network Service
to the registry under hklm\system\ccs\services\dhcp and tcpip?
I'm not quite sure if this is how to give the network services account full control.
