Have you authorized the DHCP server?

Open the DHCP MMC.

In the console tree, click DHCP.

On the Action menu, click Manage authorized servers.

The Manage Authorized Servers dialog box appears.

Click Authorize.

When prompted, type the name or IP address of the DHCP server to be authorized, and then click OK.
