SBS 2011 - DHCP Stopes servicing clients


We have SBS 2011, which started to log event ID 1041 - The DHCP service is not servicing any DHCPv4 clients because none of the active network interfaces have statically configured IPv4 addresses, or there are no active interfaces.

And sometimes some of the computers cannot get IP addresses.

I checked the DHCP server bindings according to Microsoft, but everything seems fine there. Could you please advise, what else I should look for ?

Thank you,

Please ensure that your IPv4 settings are not on Automatically obtain IP address.
Because the DHCP server is responsible for servicing IPs so you have to configure its IP settings manually.

Muhammad Burhan - the server is on static IP address. It is running fine for two years.
Larry Struckmeyer MVP - I will run the wizard and post the results.
disable your adapter and then re enable it, lets see what happens in logs regarding DHCP.

Check the power Management settings on your network adaptor and make sure that the option for 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' is unchecked.
Have you buy chance disabled IPv6 on the server?
Just ran a Fix my network wizard, it showed issue with DNS server, which is now fixed and I am monitoring the system for a couple days.
