SBS 2003 DHCP Not Enabled Node Type Unknown

MRG_AL asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
We recently had to upgrade our internet modem and remove the previous ip address in order to add a string of 5 static ip addresses which originally was completed incorrectly. Now our service provider fixed the ip addresses so they do register as active although our client computers and servers are having issues connecting to our server and our server ipconfig is showing DHCP is not enabled and Node Type is Unknown.

I checked our DHCP and see our server and the scope does see some client computers and their ip addresses although it does not see any printers.

In regard to the Node setting I tried changing the registry which the Enable Proxy currently shows as 2. I changed it to 0....rebooted the server and it changed back to 2 after the reboot. The client computers show the Node should be Hybrid. If some one could help me enable the DHCP and get our server back to its orginal state I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you
