Q

How do I authorize the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) in Active Directory?

Expert Laura E. Hunter explains to a reader what needs to happen in order for the DHCP to accept authorization in Active Directory.

I have a problem regarding my Windows 2003 domain controller. I have configured this server as a DNS and DHCP server, too. All is running well, but the DHCP declined to be authorized. Every time I try to authorize it, it gives me this error saying "Access Denied". I'm the domain administrator. In event viewer I get event 1059 and 1046.

Looking forward to your response.

You need to have Enterprise Admin credentials to authorize a DHCP server in Active Directory. Check this out to find more information.
