JSI Tip 7452. The default value of the DHCP BackupInterval is incorrectly documented?

The Windows 2000 Server DHCP Database Files section in the DHCP online Help contains:

The DHCP database and related registry entries are automatically backed up at a specific interval (15 minutes by installation default).

The actual value of the BackupInterval is 60 minutes.

NOTE: The DHCP database is automatically backed up when the DHCP service is stopped.
