DHCP Corrupt?

DHCP Corrupt?

DHCP Corrupt?

What do you think? I am running DHCP on a Windows NT 4.0 SP4 server. I am getting DHCPServer events 1010, 1014 and 1016 every 4-6 days with error codes of -533 and -1032 on event 1014. These are explained in Technet under Jetpack error codes as follows: -533 = checkpoint file not found or corrupt (yeah, I know it's pretty clear that word corrupt!), -1032 = cannot access file. This leads me to believe that there may be a file access/permission problem OR another process is interfering with the DHCP db backup. Technet gives different error codes on event 1014 (-510, -1022, -1850)for restoring a corrupt db file which I have never gotten. So, I am looking for your expert opinions on whether you think I have a corrupt DHCP database or not!

RE: DHCP Corrupt?

Sounds like you have got a corruption.

Try renaming the mdb file so it starts again.

RE: DHCP Corrupt?

Have you actually run JETPACK on your DHCP database? If you have not then I would suggest you start there and see what type of errors if any you get. Let me know. I have worked extensivly with MS DHCP.



RE: DHCP Corrupt?

I have not run Jetpack - that is my next step. One thing I forgot to mention is that I've been getting these errors since applying SP4 some time ago. Not sure if that means anything or not! Thanks for the suggestions so far!

RE: DHCP Corrupt?

In that case try loading SP5 before trying Jetpack.

RE: DHCP Corrupt?

Start simple. Use jetpack first. The more SP's you add the more additional things you add the more failure points you get. SP4 works fine with DHCP. You need to pin point to problem before trying to cover it up.
