Posted on 2006-05-12
I am running Windows 2003 Server Enterprise. The server act as DNS and DHCP, Active directory is also installed on the server. My DHCP server is down or not working. If I go the DHCP snap in it displays the folowing message: (Cannot find the dhcp server. The dhcp server you specified cannot be located. The DHCP server might be down, there might be network problems, or the DHCP service might not be installed.
The error was: The DHCP Server service is not running on the target computer.
To retry the connection, either press F5, or on the Action menu, click refresh.

If i go to services DHCP the startup type is automatic and the status shows starting.
