The DHCP service encountered the following error when backing up the database: %1

Details
Product: Windows Operating System
Event ID: 1016
Source: DHCP
Version: 5.0
Component: DHCP
Message: The DHCP service encountered the following error when backing up the database: %1
   
Explanation

This error occurs when you move the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) database and its backup directories from the default location. When the DHCP service is initially installed, its database is stored in the \System32\DHCP folder, and the backup folder is set to \System32\DHCP\Backup\Jet. The DHCP database tracks all attached database directories and files in the System.mdb file. If the database and backup directories are moved, the backup fails. It does so because it tries to back up the database from the old and new locations but cannot
find the database file in the old location.

   
User Action

Copy the original Windows 2000 system.md_ file from the Windows 2000 compact disc to your hard drive. Then run the Systemroot\System32\Expand.exe program to expand System.md_ to System.mdb. Next, copy System.mdb to the new database location.
