Snow Leopard Server DHCP Not Working

Brand new server and all other services are working properly but DHCP continually crashes:

Jan  5 21:08:51 qiserver[54741]: 2010-01-05 21:08:51.648 ReportCrash[54741:7e2f] Saved crash report for bootpd[54810] version ??? (???) to /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/bootpd_2010-01-05-210851-3_localhost.crash
Jan  5 21:08:51 qiserver bootpd[54811]: server name
Jan  5 21:08:51 qiserver bootpd[54811]: interface en0: ip mask
Jan  5 21:08:51 qiserver bootpd[54811]: [54811] detected buffer overflow
Jan  5 21:08:51 qiserver[1] ([54811]): Job appears to have crashed: Abort trap

I've completely deleted and re-created the subnet, restarted the server several times, deleted the bootpd.plist... crash report is attached. I know I've deleted the configuration files used by the server manager before but I'll be damned if I can find them now. I'm stumped for the moment.

at first, you should install the latest update. If I'm not wrong, 10A433 is the original 10.6 version, the current one is 10.6.2. As a next step turn off DHCP and remove the contents of /var/db/dhcpclient.

Try to start DHCP again.

Also, it continually crashes without a subnet enabled or even in the list.

Good call on the server update. I completely doped out on that one but that didn't fix it. What did fix it was deleting the dhcpd_leases file within that same directory.

Thanks for you help...sometimes you just need a little kick to point you in the right direction.
