Why isn't my DHCP Scope issuing leases anymore?
Posted on 2008-06-13
This is a wierd one. We have a Windows 2003 Server that we move the DHCP scope off of back in March 2008. Everything has been running fine until last week. All of a sudden the server stopped renewing IP Addresses.
There are a few dhcp errors inside the event log, pointing to the permissions that the scope runs under but I can't remember the exact error message. I did what MS told me to do and it didn't resolve the issue.
I also saw an error in the event log that pointed to a Jet -1032 error; but that didn't yield any positive results either.
I followed MS's approach to restore the DHCP database which didn't help and I also totally deleted the DHCP scope and recreated it; which didn't help either.
Some of my users can get a DHCP address but the majority cannot; which makes little sense to me. I have turned the DHCP on the old server scope back on and there isn't a conflict; which there should be since it is the same scope with the same exceptions, and it is issuing DHCP addresses without issue.
What am I missing? I have checked the permissions and they are h set to the same settings. As I said earlier, it was working fine for 3 months then all of a sudden it started having issues.
We have the lease set to expire after 8 days.
Any help is appreciated.
