The problem starts with the first error listed here and progresses until my dhcp server dies. I try to restart it and I get the not enough storage error you see listed toeard the bottom of the error list.

Rebooting the server fixes the issue for about 4 days or so. Then boom, this again.

I know of no changes made lately other than data in the different apps.

SP1 has a quirk in it that will flood the NIC and shut down services. It has to do with the MTU channels.

Let me provide you with the fix. Alternatively consider upgrading to SP2. Event 333 sometimes is associated with this error:

____________________________________________________________________________
FYI:
RPC stands for Remote procedure Call. It is used for clients to contact the server and run remote applications on servers or other clients. It requires IP connectivity. So, RPC requires DHCP, not the other way around.
_________________________________________________
One thing that concerns me are the errors that say "not enough storage". Can you tell me how big your root drive is and how much room you have left?
So how much free space do you have on your server?

C: (Windows Drive) total size 8.7 G  Free 2.3G
d: Page and apps drive  total size 25G  Free 17G

I will go to SP2 and get back with you.
It may be a few days to see if that actually fixes it.
keep us posted

Commented:
9GB is pushing the envelope for root drive size. (still workable)

You may want to read this:

Nevertheless, I think SP1 is your issue.

Google says visiting that website might harm my computer.
What exactly do you mean by pushing the envelope?
I seem to have room left and my paging file is on my D:

Commented:
About 12Gb is a good drive size for C:

I do see that you have room. But, future updates (especially Service packs) may take that up. It was justa  consideration, and doesn't seem to be the problem.

HI
Its not important that mean No Enough Disk space
Did you Try Performace Monitor to see if you have a HIGH I/O Access
(1) reduce the number of running programs; (2) remove unwanted files from the disk the paging file is on and restart the system; (3) check the paging file disk for an I/O error; or (4) install additional memory in your system

Commented:
I have installed SP2 finally. I am waiting to see if the issue returns. It was pretty reliable that it would start failing about 4 or 5 days after a restart.

SP2 Seems to have fixed the issue.
Thank you.
