I currently administer a Windows 2008 domain network with DHCP running on the DC. Clients obtain addresses dynamically and servers are assigned static addresses.
In the case that the DC fails overnight and workers come in the morning, they will not have an IP address and won't be able to connect to the internet. I figured that if I move the DHCP to the firewall, people would still be able to login to the internet and the network would still be basically functional, without AD features.
Am I incorrect with my logic? What are pros and cons of having DHCP on the firewall in an Active Directory network?
