There is a thread from about 9 years ago that I was reading when looking into whether we should change the servers in our environment to DHCP.
Here is the Link.
It seems that most of the common concerns can be mitigated quite easily these days.
-Have a failover DHCP cluster for redundancy -Use DHCP Reservations -port and network security to prevent rogue dhcp servers
It seems that there is a real divide between the static people and the DHCP camp, and I would like to get a better understanding of both sides.
What are some of the reasons you use DHCP for servers? or What are the reasons you have chosen not to?
I feel that for our environment 500+ servers and growing, that the centralized network management and and the availability of using DHCP with reservations would be a huge benefit.
