I tried to recreate the scope - By deleting and reauthorizing server - But for some reason I still get the access denied
Is there anything helpful in the Event Logs?
"Repair and Compact the DHCP Database"

"How to move a DHCP database from a computer that is running Windows NT Server 4.0, Windows 2000, or Windows Server 2003 to a computer that is running Windows Server 2003"

I hope it can help.

Yeah I ended up do a restore last night - I have read all your above comments online and really none of them helped - It wasnt really that they where corrupted it was because the dhcp didnt like the location of the move for log files - thanks though
