    When I try to add a reservation for a printer, it does not allow me to add
    and gives me the following error. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    An error occurred while accessing the DHCP database; look at the DHCP server
    event log for more information

  2. Is the DHCP server working correctly (i.e.: is it leasing IP addresses)?
    Have you got any errors in the Event Viewer?

    It looks like the DHCP database could be corrupted; to restore it, read the
    kb article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/173396/en-us

    Hope it helps.
