It means that your scope is running low on addresses...you either need to increase the scope or if your turnaround on leases is farily quick then reduce the lease time

It appears to be

"Scope alert: All IP addresses have been allocated by the DHCP server and are in use. No more clients can obtain IP addresses from the DHCP server because it has no more IP addresses to allocate."
