DHCP Service Stops on Network with RIS just installed
Posted on 2006-04-17
I have a SBS 2003 network with an additional DC. The SBS server (SBS) runs DHCP. I just installed Remote installation services on the additional Server 2003 Standard DC (SRVstd). RIS requires an authorized DHCP server. I verified the install of RIS and it seems to have authorized SRVstd as a DHCP server even thought DHCP is not installed.
The DHCP service on SBS stops 1 hour after it is started. On the SBS server when I view authorized DHCP servers, SRVstd shows up. So I unauthorized it an restarted the DHCP services. Like clock work the DHCP service stops 1 hour later.
Any ideas why this is and how to stop it? RIS is very cool and I want to keep it installed, but I also have laptop users and need DHCP to work.
Thanks for any ideas.
