DHCP Server Installation, Continued
Specifying a domain name as well as the DNS server is also important. Here, many DNS servers can be specified, if they are available. For reasons of reliability, the IP address of the DSL router can be given here so that the user can still connect to the Internet if the server crashes or is restarted.
If you didn't install the WINS server, then leave the text boxes empty. Otherwise, the same thing applies as for the DNS settings.
After successfully setting up an address range (scope), the DNS server still has to be authorized in order to work in the Active Directory. A right-click and the right choice of the respective item is all you need. The procedure only takes half a minute.
Finished - DHCP works! However, make sure that only one DHCP server is providing its services in the network. DSL routers often provide similar functions, which of course have to be deactivated.
