    I have a customer with a network in a public environment (golf course). A conference room has a wireless router plugged into the network giving the conference room users access to the Internet on a different subnet.

    Yesterday the DHCP server on the Windows 2003 server (192.168.10.2) shut down because it detected a rougue DHCP server (192.168.0.1) on the network. We suspect that someone hit the reset button on the wireless router which enabled DHCP. It had been previously disabled.

    Is it possible to disable Server 2003 ability to shut down the DHCP service on detection of a rougue DHCP server? Becuase of this one incident, the entire facility went down including all the POS terminals.

    Thanks,
