DHCP Server

I'm setting up Windows SB server on a network where the router was the DHCP server - is it best to switch off DHCP in the router and let SBS do this?
Any pointers would be welcome...

  1. you can only have one dhcp server. depends on where the server is located. if in runs server--->router--->computers then run dhcp on the server and turn off on the router.
    if its router---->server and other computers. let the router do the dhcp
    either way the server should be set with a static ip address.
  2. I would only run dhcp on a server if it was a domain controller or if the network was very large. But that's just me :)

  3. I would only use Wondows 2000/2003 DHCP server for a Domain setup. It offers dynamic DNS. It will automatic update the DNS name server.
