server 2k3 DHCP server say not connected

By techrific ·
Hi all, the problem that seems to be keelhauling me is this...

Server 2k3 setup as DNS and DHCP with active directory

When I go to the DHCP server, it says "not connected" but when I double click on the server in the right pane it changes to "active" but it still doesnt seem to be working right as some application when trying to login give an error stating default gateway is offline or not configured.
Any ideas all?

happens when you reboot and DHCP dependencies aren't starting in the right order so DHCP fails to start.

note: this happens on W2003 Server DHCP services. On W2K this doesn't seem to happen. Even if you've authorized the DHCP and activated it, if the server reboots an you open up DHCP MMC you'll see that it's not started.

Do you have SP1 installed?
