  • DHCP Server won't start after sbs 2003 sp1

    I have a DHCP server running on SBS 2003 standard server, which all of a sudden it's unable to start.

    The service can't start. In the event viewer, I have the following errors:

    Error 1004
    The DHCP service failed to initialize the database. The following error occurred:

    Error 1014
    The following problem occurred with the Jet database -1811: Jet database read or write operations failed. If the computer or database has just been upgraded, then this message can be safely ignored. If this message appears frequently, either there is not enough disk space to complete the operation or the database or backup database may be corrupt. To correct this problem, either free additional space on your hard disk or restore the database. After you restore the database, ensure that conflict detection is enabled in DHCP server properties. For information about restoring the database, see Help and Support Center. Additional Debug Information: JetRestore.

    Error 1018
    The DHCP service failed to restore the database. The following error occurred:
    An error occurred while accessing the DHCP database. Look at the
    DHCP server event log for more information on this error.

    Error 1008
    The DHCP service is shutting down due to the following error:
    The service has returned a service-specific error code.

    Error 7024
    The DHCP Server service terminated with service-specific error 20013 (0x4E2D).

    This errors are consistent each time I try and start the DHCP server service. I am able to go into the DHCP console but I get an error stating that the DHCP server can't be found.

    I've reinstalled DHCP several times but it didn't work.
    I also tried uninstalling DHCP, deleting the C:\Windows\system32\dhcp folder, and also removing it from the registry in HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCP. I then rebooted and reinstalled DHCP again, but the same thing keeps happening.

    I've done the jetpack restore and still same issues.

    Any suggestions??
