DHCP errors

Hello,

My DHCP server can not be found. That is my error when I open up DHCPin Administrator tools.  Not enough storage is available to start the operation. I have 850MB of Hard Drive space left on that drive. How much does DHCP require?  I am at a loss here, I hope someone can help me. My network needs your help.

Thank you,
Janet

before adjusting the paging file, i would first Increase the maximum registry size. You can always split paging file between
your two drives.

Janet -> open services.msc and see if DHCP server and it's dependancies are running. Also, how big is your pagefile?

This sounds like the size of the registry has exceeded the maximum size set in the virtual memory settings.

RESOLUTION: Increase the maximum registry size. To do that, go to Start>Control Panel>System>Performance> Change (In Windows 2000, click the Advanced tab, click Performance Options, and then Change). Type a larger value in the Maximum Registry Size box.

THank you for your ideas, I am sure the lack of hard drive space is a problem. I have 872MB left on the C: drive and 21 G on my D: drive. Not enough on my C: drive to increase my paging file. Is it safe to just "move" items from my C: drive to my larger D: drive? I won't move any applications.

Else....how can I increase my C: drive while taking away some space from my D: drive?
PS..Windows 2000 server.

Thank you....

Why don't you just place the paging file on the D: drive? That will free up a significant amount of space.
I think that gdplusmore's suggestion to increase the registry size is a good one. Have you done that?

I now have 592 MB left on my C: drive and 866 MB left on my D: drive.

I have set the paging file to 0 = C: drive and to 1000 - 1500 on the D: drive.
My registry size is 17 MB = current and 121 MB = maximum size. Does this sound like a good plan?

Thank you,
Janet

My DHCP server is now happy and so am I. No event viewer errors.
The 2 of you have been a great help.

Thank you,
