SBS DHCP Server on a network with existing DHCP
Posted on 2006-04-27
I'm about to replace an Windows 2003 Standard server with an SBS 2003.
Those servers has difference names and difference domains.
The new server will (are) holding the DHCP server. Also DNS and all those things an SBS server will do..
The new server isn't finished configured and will not be taken in use by any clients YET (except me and test users).
Can I connect this new server to the main network (with the windows 2003 standard PDC), and let all computers use this new server as DHCP? And deactivate the DHCP at the server who's being replaced? As i understood, there can't be two DHCP servers on same network (they will also use same ip-adresses in scope so..). Is there any other problems who can ocurr? Like with the DNS. They even using difference internet connections by this time.
