DHCP Database error

When I try to add reservations to the dhcp server I get "Jet Database error -524 (cannot backup database), see event log ".  I have uninstalled the service and deleted old registry settings, several times.   I have been able to add as many as 20 reservations before receiving this error, sometimes I can’t add one.   I have reinstalled the Windows Server as upgrade thinking it was a corrupt system file, but the problem still persists.   The only other thing I can think of if there is an ODBC or Jet database setting that needs to be fixed, but I don’t know where to look.

ANY input would be greatly appreciated,
Sean

It seems like your DHCP database is corrupted. You need to restore the file dhcp.mdb from the following directory -  'c:\winnt\system32\dhcp\backup\jet\new' to 'c:\winnt\system32\dhcp'.
You need to stop dhcp service and move all the files but not the 'backup' directory from 'c:\winnt\system32\dhcp' direcotory to somewhere else before you restore the file.
