Seems starting yesterday my Windows 2000 DHCP Server is not handing out addresses to clients anymore. There has been no network/hardware/software changes to really cause it to stop functioning, so I am stuck When looking at the DHCP server it is fully functioning and has no errors in either the DHCP or system event logs; you wouldn't even know there is a problem. But when our workstations are trying to renew or get a IP address, the broadcast is timing out saying no DHCP server is responding. I have attempted restarting the service, restating the server, and even installing the DHCP service on a different server, and still the clients are timing out.
We know its a DHCP problem becuase assigning a static IP address is successful and everything then works fine. I am guessing it has to do with some sort of network issue or something else possibly messing with the broadcast, but I have run out of ideas on what it could be. If anybody has had this problem before or has some DHCP troubleshooing ideas, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help.
