I'm having a "lively" debate with a work associate about the reasons for or against using DHCP on servers in a network environment. The network environment in particular is a relatively small network, but in my experience it's always better to have servers on static addresses, especially for things like remote management, etc.
I looked, and could find any specific reasons for or against dynamic addresses assigned on servers so I figured I'd ask the crowd here.
My work associate argues for DHCP assigned server addresses for ease of management, and states if the addresses ever change you don't have to change the server IP manually. I'm dubious about this response.
For management purposes, this network being small, it's no big deal to change the IP of static devices since there's so few.
Any suggestions, ideas or comments?
