    I have windows 2003 SBS Italian version, configured to use Dhcp service.
    Suddenly i find dhcp service stopped and a warning message with id 1053
    about the presence of another dhcp server on my lan with ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    i'm able to start dhcp service but now when i open dhcp consolle it was
    stopped and can't start. I tried to start dhcp consolle but after a little
    of time own service stopped.
    Everyone has idea?
    P.S. Setting manual Ip the client work fine. But the problem is that are
    over 50 clients
    TIA Pupo

  2. Shut down the other DHCP Service. Cable/DSL NAT Devices are a common source
    of that.

  4. I heard there was a small utility that would find and list any DHCP Servers
    it found. but I don't remember what it was called. Maybe soneone else around
    here will know.

  5. Disable your DHCP server,
    then on a WinXP or 2000 machine, do an ipconfig /release, then an ipconfig
    /renew, if you get an ip address, there's another DHCP server, and an
    ipconfig /all will show you it's ip address.
