DHCP not authorized to service clients?

DHCP not authorized to service clients?

Single server (test lab) running Windows 2000 as a domain controler. Has both DNS and DHCP.

DHCP is configured but doesn't work. In the event log I get the error:

Event: 1051
The DHCP/BINL has determined that it is not authorized to service clients on this network for the domain: mydomain.com

What's going on?

Goofy me... I found it.

I had to right click on the server in DHCP manager and choose "Authorize."

Does this mean I can give myself points?
