Running out of DHCP addresses when I shouldn't be.

I am continuosly having to release or delete DHCP addresses on a Windows 2000 dhcp server. I have 500 addresses available with only 150 nodes using DHCP. When  i display the statistics for my leases I it will be below the warning threshold or completely out although when I count the number of leases under the list in the right window I am below 150. I also have my lease expiration set for 2 days.

Has anyone run into this before.

This is a common issue with 2000 dhcp especially if you are running remote access.  The remote access connections never seem to release the adresses.  

I never tried to fix the problem because I just moved the dhcp to my cisco router which is much better at dhcp and just freed up resources on the server.    

When I was having that problem and researching it.  I couldn't believe the number of post about all the problems with 2000 server dhcp.  

I have a few customer running dhcp on 2003 servers and they are not seeing the same issues.

Are you running RRAS on this server?

Thaks this has been happening for a long time and I am just getting tired of it now. I had thought about moving dhcp to one of my 2003 servers and that will happen soon.

Unless I here from anyone else with a definate solution the points are yours.

If you have no reservations using up IP addresses then I would agree with centrepc to move the DHCP server to your 2003 server.
