We are using a DHCP server out of a linux OS right now for our subnet. I am thinking of changing to a Windows DHCP Server, however, because it might be easier for future admins.
What I want to do is to add the DHCP Server role to Windows Server (which I know how to do) and set up the DHCP options. I need to be able to configure in the options what I have in the linux DHCP options (
My question however, is this: can I set up this DHCP server and test it on just one or two devices without interfering with the DHCP server (on the linux box) that manages my network? Can I add the role to Windows Server without that taking over DHCP duties on my network until I get it configured?
