activate windows 2008 DHCP

I've just set up a new Windows 2008 server and added it as a DC.  I've set up DHCP but am unable to get the IPV4 to activate (red down arrow).  It looks like the server is authorized b/c my only option under actions is to unauthorize.  I have the option to deactivate/activate the individual scope under IPV4 but without activating this nothing is happening.  What needs to be done to get this active and supplying IP addresses?

Thanks for your help.

There are a couple things you can try to help update DHCP with its authorization status.
  1. Restart the DHCP Server.  At the commpand prompt, type:
        NET STOP DHCPServer & NET START DHCPServer
  2. If you have multiple domain controllers, force them to replicate, then run the command above.
  3. Restart the server entirely.

Thanks.  I can't believe I didn't think to restart the service!
