normally it would be called dhcpd, but could be a number of other things, for example dnsmasq, which is a very veyr simple dns and dhcp server. if you run "netstat -panu" on the server you should see all udp sockets, and whatever is listening on port 67 is your man. Now if no one is listening, then you have other problems...
and if you don't want whatewver it is, just uninstall the rpm and it'll go poof!
Yes, and if it were dhcpd then it would be there. In fact it is very similar compared to windows in many respects when it comes to services. but if there's no dhcpd then either it's being loaded from somewhere else (like windows can and often does) or it's a different program altogether (just like many windows apps)
Thank you for the reply--I do appreciate it!
I shall do further investigating. It could be possible that another dhcp server is on the network, however it is a real simple network with only 2 other Windows servers besides the Linux. And I have checked them both and they are not running DHCP.
Also-- when I do ipconfig /all it shows for the Dhcp server info the address of the Linux server, which indicates that is where the machine has pulled it's IP address (?)
