Support and Info required for setting up DHCP in my environment

Hi! I was hoping you could shed some light on my DHCP concern. I intend to implement DHCP in my environment and I need to clarify some things first before I actually do it. I want to know if I need to put public DNS at the forwarder; if it is possible for me to give certain users a static IP; how much lease I should implement; and what are the problems I am likely to encounter when implementing DHCP. Currently, some of the static IPs are not working that I need to change the IP address because only then can users access the server applications. Am I bound to encounter the same problem when I install DHCP? I hope you could give me some advice. Thank you.

Lisa_Ouzts,

I should say that the environment that you are working has a lot of computers that you will need to configure the dynamic host control protocol will be the best way for you to allocate IP addresses to the computer. I should however say that using static IP addresses on the same network that you are implementing DHCP may bring some little challenges in that IP addresses may conflict for the DHCP allocates the addresses to the computers randomly.

So I would rather you stuck to DHCP for all the computers on the network so as to avoid conflicting IP addresses.

If you need to have some computer use a static ip address, perhaps due to some networks settings you need to implement or network sharing that need specific addresses to be present in your network setup, then you need to setup the static ip addresses in a way that is out of the DHCP server's IP address table. That way, there wouldn't be any IP address conflicts which will create problems with the concerned systems. Like when an IP address is within the DHCP server's range, the DHCP server might assign the same IP address to another system, so both systems will have the same address when communicating with the network, hence creating a problem. If you have a preferred DNS address, then you can use that DNS address, otherwise use the one from your internet service provider.
