SBS 2003 DHCP Problems
Posted on 2010-11-15
I have client with SBS2003 std r2 with sp2. Today we had to replace one of our hard drives as we were alerted that
the array was degarded. I shut the server start shutdown, replaced the old drive with the new drive and rebooted. Wehn I rebooted
stated there was a DHCP error. So I went to administrative tools DHCP and sure enough the scope and the server name disappered. I added the nmanged server back to the dhcp list
and got a red x. I tried here to start the DHCP and i get the following error "system error 65535 occured" and DHCP fails to start. I have tried everything I checked permissions on the TCPIP and DHCP in Regedit everything looks normal
Before we replaced the bad drive DHCP was working fine and we had no know errors. I have tried researching and im running out of patience. any help would be greatly appreciated. I even tried running the CEICW and it immediately pops a window and states that
ther are no DHCP server and I have define a scope. I cant even define a scope becasue it will not allow me to start dhcp. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
