Strange DHCP behaviorLocked
Hi, I have a client who was trying to make additions to dhcp (adding a second dhcp server that would be tied to a second nic card in the same machine). Apparently the person got stuck at some point and decided to remove dhcp from the system altogether and then reload it (mind you, wins and dns were also on this test configuration). When dhcp reloaded and after sp5 install, another admin tools (common) folder showed up (under all users and not admin start menu) and the folder contained only dhcpmanager. Then, when trying to start dhcp, gets error 0003 path not found. Now, I’m not sure what exactly happened; I am now looking at the machine and all I can think of is that dhcp could not fully uninstall and so there is the old database competing with the new, but I can’t find it. Anyway, has anyone ever seen this since the user wants to know what happened, and I don’t know. And second, would it be best to just stop wins, dns, uninstall them, uninstall the tcp/ip stack and set this up for him fresh? or is there some workaround I just don’t see? Sheesh, what a day. Thanks for any help.
