EventID 1050 (Error)

I have an error in my event viewer with the following information:

Message: The DHCP/BINL service on the local machine encountered a network error.  The error was: 0x   2.

Log Name: System
Source: DHCP-Server
EventID: 1050
Level: Error
User: N/A
OpCode: Info

I don't understand the meaning of this error.  Has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks in advance.

1050 is typically an "unable to save" error.  In this case, the system would seem to be having difficulty accessing something on the network.

There's a TechNet post on it...

Thank you for the response.  I have already reviewed that TechNet article, but following there steps, nothing seems to out of the norm.  However, the error states that "The DHCP/BINL service on the local machine encountered a network error", and when I run ipconfig /all from the domain controller that is reporting this error, it states that DHCP is not enabled... Is this stating that the DHCP service is not enabled, or that because I am using a static IP for the DC, DHCP is not enabled or required?

Thanks, again.

You didn't, perchance, use a network installation routine in setting up this machine, did you?

Otherwise, it sounds as if you might have a misconfiguration between your DHCP server and your BINL (Boot Information Negotiation Layer) setup.  To check tweaks for BINL, check out...

Also...

If you're using Small Business Server, you can get this error if you have two NIC's installed on the machine, and have both configured to use the same subnet.  SBS will also report this error if another domain server is found on the same subnet.

And, finally (for now)...
Make sure BINL is authorized to function on your domain.

I think you might have nailed it.  I do have two NICs on the DC, but only one of them is in use.  Should I disable the second NIC or are there dummy settings that I should configure?

Disable.

After disabling the second NIC, I am still receiving this error once every hour.  Do I need to perform a restart on the server for the changes to truly take effect?

I wouldn't think so, but it's possible.  If you can find a good time to do a reboot, it never hurts.

Thanks.  I'll let you know how it works out after the weekend.

After disbaling the second NIC card, and performing a restart on the system, this error was resolved.  Thank you for the help.  Sorry for the tardiness of the acceptance of this answer.

Glad you got it worked out.  You may now begin combing your hair again, rather than ripping it out by the handful.
