DHCP/WINS Access Denied as Domain Admin!

I'm trying to administer DHCP or WINS, but I get the following error:

"Access is Denied. You do not have access to this DHCP server. To view information on a DHCP server, you must be logged in as an Administrator, DHCP Administrator, or DHCP User. If you still cannot acccess this server, to retry the connection, either press F5 or on the Action menu, click Refresh."

When I try WINS, it says the same error, but says WINS Server.

I have tried as Administrator, Domain Admin, Local Admin on the DHCP server, and other Domain Admins. I've also tried adding Domain Admins to the DHCP Administrators group both locally on the server and in the domain and still it gives the same error. Have rebooted the server and restarted the service(s) and still no joy.

Any ideas? Could the WINS and DHCP databases be corrupt? Is there a way to recover it? There is no major errors in the event log either.

Thanks

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

are you able to perform other admin tasks such as delegating control in AD etc etc....?

is your domain admin group deffinitely a member of the builtin admins group?

Yes everything else Admin related works fine. I can get into DNS fine too.

DOMAIN\Administrator definitely member of DOMAIN\Administrators and DOMAIN\Domain Admins and DOMAIN\Enterprise Admins

I tend to think that this isn't a rights issue, maybe the DHCP/WINS dbs are corrupt?
