DHCP not working, Different name

By SynapsE_z ·
Hi everyone,

I have this weird issue that has been going on for the last few days. I got complaints that people's "internet did not work". I noticed that they were not getting IP addresses. Upon looking at the DHCP server MMC, I noticed that the name for the server had changed. Instead of using [server name][IP address] it was using activedirectory.[domain name].local

I tried to delete that but it gave me access denied. I then added a Managed DHCP server (with the correct name) and then deleted the one mentioned above.

At this point everyone was able to get IP addresses again. A couple of days later, the same problem happened. It's driving me crazy. Does anyone know why DHCP has a different name listed and how to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
