Windows 2003 DHCP server locks up
Posted on 2008-02-11
I have a DHCP server running on a Windows 2003 Standard Server. Twice now the DHCP server has locked up on me at random times and it will not service DHCP requests. When I go into "Services" in the Control Panel, it says that the service is "Shutting Down" and all of the options to start or stop the service are grayed out. The only way to get the service back and running is to reboot the server. My Event Viewer shows nothing about why or when the DHCP service failed.
I have Yosemite Tapeware backup installed and it is maybe the only thing I can think of that is causing this to happen, but I have no way to be sure. I also have MS SQL 2005 installed. Any thoughts or ideas?
