SBS 2003 server - everything was running fine.  1/2 of all users all of a sudden couldn't login today.

Assign a static ip address to any client  - works fine.
went thru troubleshooting switches also (moving computers around to different switches)
enabled DHCP on a secondary server - then clients could connect. (except VPN users were getting a 169.X.X.X address.
reset DHCP on sbs (removed scope, created new one), reboot, still nothing
tried running thru CEICW again also

There were only 2 things changed over night:  
1.  A firewall blocking policy to specific websites (i.e. myspace, facebook, etc.)
2.  Enabled outbound FTP to specific sites and unchecked the "read only" parameter (isa 2004)


Any thoughts?  
SBS 2003 R2

Just a FYI - finally fixed it.

Remove DHCP scope
Create new scope
Reapply ISA 2004 SP3
DHCP started working again

Althought I fixed it by recreating the scope, I did set this DHCP scope in ISA and have not had the issue re-occur.
