DHCPserver restarts every 5 minutes. Windows 2008R2

    Question

  • I start the service DHCP. It starts. Clients are able to get a IP address.
    But in events I see that the service DHCP stops and starts every 5 minutes. As a workaround I created an other DHCPserver on an other server and this one is still running without a problem.

  • Any event log errors for DHCP or anything else in the App or System logs?

    Is this server a DC? Then check the AD Web services, DFS Replication, Directory Services, DNS Server & File Replication Server logs. Post the Event ID# and Source name in the event, and the server name it came from.

    An ipconfig /all of the good DHCP server and this one, would help, too.
