I have a 2000 server with 40 workstations - combo of 98 and 2000 professional:
I keep getting the following error messages:

unable to connect to dhcp server (win 98)
lhs is not accessible. no more connections to the remote computer are permitted at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept (win 98 and 2000)
unable to browse network
directory service busy
no domain controller available
cannot log you on because this computer's account in its primary domain is missing
lhs is not available - the specified network name is not available (windows 2000)

In spite of all of these error messages connectivity is never down.  I can cancel out of logging into the network and then ping the network server, the router and get online without any problem.
I suspect something is misconfigured in my dhcp server or something.  It has worked fine up to now and I have plenty of IP addresses left and I'm fine with my licensing

There are no viruses.

Event Viewer:
event 6702:
DNS Server has updated its own host (A) records.  In order to insure that its DS-integrated peer DNS servers are able to replicate with this server, an attempt was made to update them with the new records through dynamic update.  An error was encountered during this update, the record data is the error code.

no errors or warnings in event viewer directory services

The NTP server  didn't respond:
Event 11

nothing in application log, security log

In system log:
event 1044:
The DHCP/BINL service on the local machine, belonging to the Windows Administrative domain LHS.local, has determined that it is authorized to start. It is servicing clients now. (This message has appeared about 40 times since 7/22/05. ( I really don't know if this is normal or not.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
