Windows 2000’s DHCP Server offers many new enhanced features that build upon a strong implementation based on RFCs 2131 and 2132. This chapter covered Windows 2000’s DHCP Server starting with a brief introduction to the Windows 2000 operating system family.
In this chapter, I covered some of the features found in DHCP server, followed by a discussion on the various installation options. Next, I introduced the Microsoft Management Console (MMS) and explained the DHCP Console that is used to manage DHCP in Windows 2000. Walking you through the configuration of a DHCP scope, I explained the different configuration items and demonstrated how they need to be configured. Finally I discussed leases, options, and reservations and how they can be configured.
