DHCP issue on my SBS08 server out of no where!
Posted on 2010-09-11
The following error has started showing up in my daily network reports:
DhcpServer 1050 22/04/2010 7:05:05 AM 24
The DHCP/BINL service on the local machine encountered a network
error. The error was: 0x 2.
SBS 2008 is the only DHCP server on the network.
DHCP is working, I can do ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew from DHCP
enabled workstations and the get a new IP as they should.
I think I have tracked down the source of the error.
If I go to Administrative Tools --> DHCP --> Right Click
"Server.domain.local" --> Add/Remove Bindings. I get an error dialog saying
"The System cannot find the file specified".
Clicking OK allows me to see that the IPv4 tab of "Server Bindings
Properties" has no available connections, it is empty.
The IPv6 tab has the IPv6 address of the Local Area Connection checked, as
SBS 2008 has a single NIC with a static IP.
Everything seems to be working fine, all services are available but I know
that there was an IPv4 binding set in DHCP and I'd like to know why it has
gone away and how to get it back.
