Exchange Best Practice Analyzer shows DHCP client service "not running" when in fact it is RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to know if this message can be ignored? That's what I'm doing at the moment, by the way.

    Thanks

  • Is this coming on exchange server? If yes, you can ignore this as I am sure exchange will be running on static IP rather then DHCP. Also update the EXBPA and run it again.

    Check comments from EXBPA Program Manager Paul http://www.mombu.com/microsoft/exchange-server-tools/t-exbpa-v26-reports-critical-issues-which-are-not-critical-212867.html

  • Dear Rajnish,

    thanks for the reply. Yes, the message is appearing on Exchange Server. Here' s the warning message:

    The DHCP Client service is not running on server ABC.LOCAL. This may cause dynamic DNS update failures, even when static IP addresses are used.


    As I mentioned before, the DHCP client service is running.

  • did you upgraded the EXBPA? Paul has good reasoning on the URL that i provided. I doubt this will create any isssue for exchange.
