I have an OES2SP3 server that runs the DHCP service. When I make a change and run a rcnovell-dhcpd restart the service fails with a

Error: Cannot find LDAP entry matching (&(objectClass=dhcpServer
Configuration file errors encountered -- exiting

I have tried to restart nldap and tomcat5 to see if it is a stuck service holding on to something it shouldn't. If I reboot the server DHCP doesn't have any issues starting. I have found a few items using google search related but am unsure if they completely fit since the service will start if the server is rebooted.

Can anyone give me an idea of what services might hang this up and possibly what steps to take if this happens to get the dhcp service online again?
