Event ID 1058 — DHCP Service Initialization

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

When the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server service initializes, it checks for proper configuration of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), including the presence of a static IP address. Successful initialization results when the DHCP server has established network communication by using TCP/IP.

Restart the DHCP Server service

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To restart the DHCP Server service:

  1. At the DHCP server computer, click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
  2. Double-click DHCP Server.
  3. On the General tab, click Stop, and then click Start.
  4. On the File menu, click Exit.


To verify that clients are getting leased IP addresses from the DHCP server:

  1. At the DHCP-enabled client computer, click Start, in Start Search type cmd, and then press ENTER.
  2. To verify the lease of the client with a DHCP server, type ipconfig /all to view lease-status information.
  3. In the output of ipconfig /all verify that the DHCP Server address matches the address of the expected DHCP server. If the address belongs to a different DHCP server than expected, the expected server might not have initialized and another available DHCP server has provided the lease.
