DHCP server won't start

Hi,

So I got this problem where the DHCP server service won't start on the SBS 2011 box.
It was working fine before the holidays and when we came back it was stopped.

So when I tried to start the service is simply said 'access denied'. The logon account is Network Service and I gave Network Service full control of the DHCP folder under system32. Same error.

I removed the role and re-added. Same problem.

I renamed the DHCP folder so it would recreate the database but now I get the following messages in event viewer:

ID: 1004
The DHCP service failed to initialize the database. The following error occurred:
Access is denied.

ID: 1018
The DHCP service failed to restore the database. The following error occurred:
An error occurred while accessing the DHCP database. Look at the DHCP server event log for more information on this error.

ID:1008
The DHCP service is shutting down due to the following error:
The DHCP/BINL service is not authorized in the directory service domain "2A040000" (Server IP Address The DHCP/BINL service is not authorized in the directory service domain "2A040000" (Server IP Address The DHCP/BINL service is not authorized in the directory service domain "2A040000" (Server IP Address The DHCP/BINL service is not authorized in the directory service domain "%2" (Server IP Address %1)
)
)
)

ID: 7024
The DHCP Server service terminated with service-specific error %%20013.


I've also attached the log from the DHCP folder when I try to start the service. This log was created just before uploading.

Any help would be great thanks.

Take a look at this PAQ as it should resolve your issue regarding the service not starting.

Hi,

That's for the DHCP client service though...

Ok, solved it.

So a few weeks ago we were getting some VSS errors and an article said to change this registry key from 1 to 0:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\VssAccessControl
NT Authority\Network Service = 1

Changed it back to 1 and service started fine.
