dhcp not working on one of my dcs in office

so im having a problem authorizing a dhcp server in my sub domain aseaz.aseca.local

i keep getting the following error.

The DHCP/BINL service on the local machine, belonging to the Windows Administrative domain ASEAZ.ASECA.LOCAL, has determined that it is not authorized to start.  It has stopped servicing clients.  The following are some possible reasons for this:
      This machine is part of a directory service enterprise and is  not authorized in the same domain.  (See help on the DHCP Service  Management Tool for additional information).

      This machine cannot reach its directory service enterprise and  it has encountered another DHCP service on the network belonging to  a directory service enterprise on which the local machine is not authorized.

      Some unexpected network error occurred.

Right click DHCP console in Administrative tools and select Run as... Enter credentials of administrator from your root domain. You have to be a member of Enterprise Admins group (found only in forest root domain) to be able to authorize DHCP server in sub domain.
