Could not install the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)...

Discussion in 'Server Networking' started by Joseph Geretz, Aug 2, 2005.

  1. Windows 2003 Server Enterprise, 5.8 GB available on the system drive - I'm
    trying to install DHCP, I get the following error:

    Could not install the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) component
    because a file or registry entry is missing.

    Nice. Of course, the real information is in the Event Log. Here are all
    event log entries generated during the course of the installation attempt
    (in chronological order):

    If you can help me out with this, I'd really appreciate it!

    Thanks,

    or the database or backup database may be corrupt. To correct this
    problem, either free additional space on your hard disk or restore the

  3. Some are reporting that this has something to do with the SQL Server 2005
    April CTP.

    I did install this a few weeks ago (although I subsequently uninstalled it)
    so this could be the source of my problem. It doesn't look like anyone has
    solved this...

    :-(

    Luckily I have a LinkSys router which I can set as the DHCP Server.
