Can't Find DHCP server Symantec Ghost 11

Hi all,

I am using symantec Ghost 11 to ghost batches of PC's it has been running fine for the past few weeks with no problems whatsoever. I amm running the ghost cast server on a windows 2003 server on its own dedicated network which was set up and again it was pushing out images no problem, however I have come in this morning and it has decided not to work, I am now getting an error message in the ghost client 'Can't find DHCP server'. I have checked the server DHCP was running so I restarted it still no joy! I then rebooted the server and still nothing. The DHCP has a scope of about 100 addresses with a one day lease and none of these addresses are used so I cannot see what the problem may be.

Anyone have any ideas!

Thanks

Have you tried connecting to the server using a PC that is already setup (without starting ghost), and does it get an IP?

My DHCP Server had crashed and had stopped serving addresses and wouldn't let me restart it! I had to install DHCP on a new server to serve my mini Ghost network with IP addresses...problem solved!

Check  your DCHP scope, we had the same probleem.
The leases from dhcp server where out of range. Our PC's had 2 adresseleases occupied around cloning.
Remove the double ones, or extent de scope.

Good Luck
