Backup DHCP Servers - 1 Failed, other running.
Posted on 2008-11-04
I have 1 server running SBS 2003 and another running 2008.
I had only 1 DHCP server running on 2003 and none on 2008. I wanted a backup DHCP server. So, as I was taught I setup a backup DHCP server by virtually splitting up the scope and setting reservations for each side.
It seemed to be working but within a few days SERVER1 (SBS) will not start the DHCP Server service and gives me an error message "The DHCP Server service on Local computer started and then stopped. Some services top automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service."
Any help or advice?
