DHCP error

We are getting errors on a server that is saying the DHCP/BINL service has determined that it is not authorized to service clients on this network for the Windows domain.  This server does not need to run DHCP.  Should we just stop the service and prevent it from starting at startup to avoid this error?

If you do not need DHCP on that server I would recommend turning it off.  Even if you did not get the error why run another service and take up resources.
The BINL service is remote installation.  It operates in conjunction with a DHCP server.

I am presuming that this is a DC, and you only get these errors when it starts up?  Sounds like you installed DHCP when doing the original install (or it came preinstalled), but when it first starts, it is simply reporting that it knows it isn't authorised to distribute IP addresses.  The service will then stop.

Basically, this is an informational event and not an error.  You could set the service to disabled to prevent any more logs, but it certainly isn't anything to be concerned about.

Someone installed DHCP but this server never intended to fit that role.  I am just going to stop the DHCP Server service and disable it at start-up.
