ASA 5510 DHCP Relay error - Remove VPN DHCP config first

I'm trying to set up DHCP relay on the ASA but am getting the error:

DHCP: Cannot enable DHCP Relay on an interface running DHCP Proxy. Remove VPN DHCP config first.

Can someone tell me where in ASDM to disable DHCP Proxy? Or, how to disable it via command line? Nowhere in "sh run" do I see DHCP Proxy, so is it called something else?

I have tried removing crypto entries to any networks that have DHCP running, as per a random suggestion on my initial online search, but that didn't work. DHCP is not running on any interfaces. I have also turned off DHCP for remote users temporarily, but I'm still getting that error.

Any ideas anyone?

Did you ever figure this out?

It ended up being a user

It ended up being a user error on my end. I was trying to configure DHCP relay on the wrong interface. I would take a step back and really look at your configuration; it is easy to get click-happy in ASDM and maybe you went down the same initial path as I did.
