I have a 2003 server with DHCP installed. The server worked like a charm, but after moving the server to another subnet the DHCP server was suddenly unauthorized. When i right click the DHCP server and click authorize (while logged on as an enterprise admin) i still see the red arrow and the status of the server is "Not authorized". The strangest thing is that if i right click the server again the "authorize" option is changed to "unauthorize".

The DHCP configuration was migrated from 2000 to 2003 with netsh....this could be the source of the problem...but i have no solution.

Who can help me?
