DHCP Server -- not connected message

I have one DHCP server on my network and it is a WIndows Server 2003 R2 Service pack 2 machine.  It is the only DHCP server on my network.  When I click on the DHCP Icon, my DHCP program page comes up and shows the server status but it always says "disconnected".  If I actually click on the DNS server name, then the appropriate DHCP info comes up and the scope says "active" and all DHCP info appears to look correct.  My question is -- is it normal for the "disconnected" status to be there until the server name is actually clicked on?  If not, what do I do to correct that?  Thanks!

Hi,

Can you post the screenshot of what you are describing above?

Does DHCP continues to work when you see it says disconnected? If yes then i believe it something to do with the screen refresh cycle or mmc rather that dhcp issue
