ProblemSaw this last week on an SBS 2011 Server. When attempting to get the DHCP service running it span up then stopped straight away.
A quick look in Event Viewer showed me what the problem was,
Event ID 1054
The DHCP/BINL service on this computer is shutting down. See the previous event log messages for reasons
Fair enough lets see the previous error on the same server;
Event ID 1053
The DHCP/BINL service has encountered another server on this network with IP Address, (IPv4 or IPv6 address), belonging to the domain
In this example the offending IP (192.168.87.254) Was a Cisco PIX 501 firewall that was running a DHCP server. Thankfully My main job that day was to replace the firewall so when I put in a new ASA I didn’t have the DHCPD service running.
