We have a secondary DNS server and we've been noticing that the DNS.exe process is getting rather large. (Like, rebooting the server large.)
I read something somewhere that 2k3 has two relevant memory leak issues, one is the DNS (supposedly fixed in Windows Server 2008), and another for DHCP.
DHCP is running on this server, but I don't see why. Hence my question. Is the DHCP client service required for (secondary) DNS to function?
Server has: 24 cores (X5650), 8GB RAM
-- edit -- It's worth adding that AD is not installed or relevant to this issue
-- edit 2 -- It is actually the DHCP Client service that is in question here. I didn't realise this at the time of posting. (Lesson: check everything yourself too)
