Service DHCP Server won't start on Server 2003


  • Hi All,

    after a scheduled reboot of a DHCP server 2003 SP2 the DHCP server service won't start.

    I tried to repair the database using a backup from another DC with no luck.

    Events logs are showing these errors :

    1004 / 1008 / 1014 / 1018

    I turned off the fast indexing of the DHCP folder as recommended, tried to run the cmd JETPACK DHCP.MDB TMP.MDB and I got the error JETPACK failed with error = -544.

    After copying the database from another DC and tried to restart the service I got this error message :

    DHCP server service on Local computer started and then stopped.

    Not sure what I can try now
