Event 1059 DHCP Error

less than 1 minute read


After I installed a new DC and gave it the AD DS, DHCP, and DNS roles I let it sit for a couple days to replicate. I ran into the issue where I had set the server’s IP static and it caused the DHCP to bind to the NIC when it shouldn’t have which generated all these 1059 error’s.

To Resolve:

  1. If you get this error, open up DHCP => Right Click (ServerName) => Add/Remove Bindings => Uncheck your server’s IP address.

  2. run => cmd => net stop dhcp && net start dhcp
