DHCPD starting problem

I'm having a problem with dhcpd on RedHat. When I type $dhcpd it gives a message saying that dhcpd is already running. When we try to stop the dhcpd via $dhcpd stop it gives an message saying "No subnet declaration for stop (

Any clues on what could cause this problem?

Also my dhcpd is in /usr/sbin directory only and is not in /etc/init.d is this normal?

/etc/init.d/ may not have a entry for dhcpd just because you never created it, or whatever installer you used never created the stop/start/restart scripts. You may need to do this manaully.

Can you post your..

dhcpd.conf file

and the output of..

ps -aux | grep dhcpd

Also has this ever worked, or are you just trying to set this up now for the first time?
