I have two servers, one SBS 2003, and one server 2008 standard. When the SBS03 was setup DHCP was not used because I was running DHCP from the router. I now want to setup DHCP on the server and it will not let me configure any scopes. I have tried starting the service but it stops again maybe 30 seconds after successfully starting. The error I get is (window title: DHCP) "The interface is unknown". I have not tried uninstalling and reinstalling the DHCP service. I was wondering if there would be any advantages or disadvantages to running DHCP from the Server 2008 std computer? (The server 2008 std does have AD and DNS running on it as a secondary/backup DC+DNS)
