Event ID 1003 — Dependent Service Availability
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server service is dependent on these services:
- Service Controller
- Global parameters initialization
- Registry parameters initialization
- RPC server start
- Winsock data initialization
The failure of any of these services to initialize or start can cause the DHCP Server service to fail.
|Product:||Windows Operating System|
|Message:||The DHCP Server service failed to initialize its registry parameters. The following error occurred:
Give the DHCP service account permissions to create directories and files
To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.
To change permissions on files and folders:
- At the DHCP server computer, click Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
- Right-click the file or folder for which you want to set permissions, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.
- Complete the following steps as needed:
- To set permissions for a group or user that does not appear in the Group or user names box, click Add, type the name of the group or user, and then click OK.
- To change or remove permissions from an existing group or user, click the name of the group or user.
- To allow or deny a permission, in the Permissions for User or Group box, select the Allow or Deny check box.
- To remove the group or user from the Group or user names box, click Remove.
- You can only set file and folder permissions on drives formatted to use NTFS.
- To change permissions, you must be the owner or have been granted permission by the owner to do so.
- Groups or users that are granted Full Control permissions for a folder can delete files and subfolders within that folder, regardless of the permissions that protect the files and subfolders.
- If the check boxes under Permissions for User or Group are shaded or if the Remove button is unavailable, then the file or folder has inherited permissions from the parent folder.
- When adding a new user or group, by default, this user or group will have Read, Read and Execute, and List Folder Contents permissions.
To verify that the DHCP Server service is running:
- At the DHCP server computer, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
- At the command prompt, type sc queryex dhcpserver.
- If all dependent services have started successfully, the DHCP Server service should be shown as RUNNING.
