I don't see that a rogue DHCP server would shut down your server.  What looks like is happening is that there is another machine that has the address of your DHCP server.  Can you have your server off and then try and locate the address  Did you dual home your server? Meaning, does your server have more than one NIC and thus more than one address on it?

In working to create a backup DHCP server for my network, I came across this document on Microsoft's site on troubleshooting DHCP servers and thought it might be helpful for you in your situation.
