Default not BES related but ...: DHCP server question

Please Login to Remove!

Since I guess that in this forum are enough people who are familiar with Microsoft Server software, I try to ask my question here:

How can I make sure (without using a layer 2/3 switch), that the Windows DHCP server service does not terminate itself when some i***t connects a device or computer to the network where also a DHCP server is running, terminates itself ?

The Windows DHCP server is of course authorized for the network, But have not found a way to force it running.

I have searched google & Microsoft, but found nothing.

I understand, that it is the admins responsibility is to make sure, that only 1 DHCP server is present in the network. But in a SOHO or SBS environment, it is not easy to stop the users from connecting a notebook to the network where internetsharing on the LAN port is enabled.

if only the DHCP server would not stop itself.

any ideas ?
