The DHCP server service on my Windows Small Business Server 2003 SP2 server won't start; Event Viewer returns error codes 1008, 1018, 1014, 1004.

Also, I am unable to start the DHCP server service using the Windows service applet.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

Exclude the DHCP folder from the Anti-virus scanning and try to restart the DHCP service.

Hope this helps,
