SBS2011 turn on Routing Remote Access DHCP quits responding, turn Routing Remote Access off DHCP works fine.

Server running fine for years, not sure what happened all of a sudden started when users lost VPN access and the LAN went offline. Turns out the DHCP server was unresponsive when I logged into the computer. Only way to get the LAN (email, websites, data, etc) to come up is disable or stop Routing and Remote Access. Soon as I do DHCP comes back online. I cannot get the two to work together. I ran "Fix my Network" and "Connect to the Internet" wizards without any luck.

I'd remove the R&RA, reboot, and run the wizards again. mark the time to check event logs after reboot.  if it doesn't work should give you a starting point,

might run the BestPracticeAnalizer also.

@R.Andrew Koffron I've done what you recommended several times and it's locked up each.

@Rob Williams I ran the VPN wizard from the right and then noticed there wasn't any network so I ran "Connect to the Internet" it came back and said it couldn't find the router, which is fine I added the IP for the router and server now it appears locked up the bar hasn't moved in 10 minutes.

I believe this has something to do with IPv6. There's no internet, there hasn't been and nslookup address shows IPv6 not IPv4 IP address.

update: nslookup didn't resolve because RRAS was on, I turned it off and everything works great now. Enable RRAS and DHCP and DNS go offline.

Thanks for IPv6 reminder, I didn't make any changes.

does your router have IP6 settings? ran across an article and someone resolved a similar issue by turning off IP6 settings on their residential router.

May I ask why you are trying to enable RRAS in the first place?

Because if it's for VPN, on an SBS 2011 you shouldn't do this manually.  Instead, run the "Configure a Virtual Private Network" wizard found in the Console > Network > Connectivity

Doing this will ensure that all settings are correct for all services.
