This morning when we came into work our DHCP server stopped issuing IP addresses.  Of course as the leases expire they aren't renewed.  We've checked and made sure that the services are running.  The server is recieving requests and according to the log it is responding.   Any Ideas?

    you may want to export your lease ranges, remove them, unauthorize, uninstall, remove the temp db etc.., reinstall, import the ranges (or recreate), and reauthorize.;en-us;325473

    Thanks answer.  We found that the database was corrupt.  Just restoring didn't work.  After removing everything in then re-importing everything is working.
