Just a little background I'm a fairly young I.T. Tech working in a school only and only been working in the as a technician for a few years so I would still consider myself a "newbie"
Anyway, My boss recently (Friday) increased our DHCP scope and also increased the lease time to 1 year.
Now for some reason Increasing to a year seems wrong although I can't put my finger on why, there isn't any real chance of us running out of IP's and I know it's considered best to have your lease time as long as possible without running out of IP's but a year is ringing alarm bells with me.
The schools pretty up to date, gig switches, fibre to cabinets, 800 PC's 1800 users. I will say this I may have only been working in the industry for 4 years and my first job was basically fixing printers and headsets in a call centre but I've been here 2 years now and I probably shouldn't say this but I really don't like my bosses "style". His reasoning behind it is it's a good idea ....... seriously thats all I could get out of him. its not anything to do with our monitoring software or anything like that.
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who replied and for making my first server fault question a great experience.
