Could not start the Microsoft DHCP Server service on \\server

Does anyone know what this error is and how to correct it?

Try looking in the event log and see if there is an event ID for this error and or an explanation, then go to MS support and see if you can find that event ID. Its very hard to tell what might be wrong by just that error code.

Good Luck!

Actually you can go to htto://support.microsoft.com and search their knowledge base for that error. My doing so only pulled up 8 articles.

RAS EVENT I 20013
SYMBOL NAME : RASLOG_EXCEPT_LAN_FAILURE
MESSAGE TEXT: The user connected to port %1 has been disconnected due to a fatal network error on the local network.
EXPLANATION : Possible physical network error.
USER ACTION : Verify that the network adapter is connected and working properly.

I recommend that you look at the network card on the server and run a diagnostic on it. Make sure it's fully functional. See if you have updated drivers or patches for it... and go from there.

If you cannot find anything wrong with the network adapter, then install or re-install the latest service pack (SP 5 or 6a depending on what you are doing with this server).
