Build a great reporting interface using Splunk, one of the leaders in the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) field, linking the collected Windows events to www.eventid.net. The EventId.Net for Splunk Add-on assumes that Splunk is collecting information from Windows servers and workstation via the Splunk Universal Forwarder.
The DHCP allocator has disabled itself on IP address 169.254.236.250, since the IP address is outside the 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 scope from which addresses are being allocated to DHCP clients. To enable the DHCP allocator on this IP address, please change the scope to include the IP address, or change the IP address to fall within the scope.

What is DHCP?
What is a DHCP Lease?
As per Microsoft: "The IP address is not within the scope of addresses allocated for Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) or Routing and Remote Access network address translation (NAT). The most probable cause is incorrect manual configuration of the IP address". See MSW2KDB for more details.
From a newsgroup post: "I was having problems running ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on my Win2K Pro. Whenever a Win98 client on the network tried to browse the web, I got an error event 31003. I resolved this problem by removing the ZoneAlarm software from my Win2k machine".
From a newsgroup post: "Make sure no DHCP service is running on your machines. ICS contains its own addressing solution and it sounds like this is conflicting with the DHCP client service".
From a newsgroup post: "I had this problem with Windows XP. Microsoft online support suggested checking all network connections in "My Network Places" and disabling any sharing of internet connections. I found one item which had this and I unchecked the internet sharing box. The error has not yet recurred".
169.254.x.x is the ip subnet that Windodws 2000 DHCP Client assigns to a machine when it cannot contact a DHCP server. The 192.168.0.0 is the range used by the Internet Connection Sharing service. So this event appears to be a conflict between these two components.
