This is a two part Question.

1)  I have an old network that is shaky at best.  I have to rest the DNS server almost daily.  There is a PC that asks to get a new lease on the IP address and gets it.  It will have atleast 13 different IP addresses at one time.  This is also a web server (well test one)  the uninque ID is like RA5 or RAS.  How do I stop the PC from obtaining a new IP address everytime (I even have reservation for it)?  And how do I solve the delima with having to reset the DNS server every day.


2)  Once I convience the powers to be to get a new server, how in the heck do I set up the Domain Controller.  I know how to set up the DHCP and DNS, but none of the PC will obtain the new license from the new server.  I dont know how to get it to use the new DNS DHCP.  How?

1) a Remote Access Server (RAS) claims ip addresses from your dhcp server bij default, this way providing addresses to dial-up or vpn-clients. Only way to stop this behaviour: remove or stop RAS on that server.
Why do yo have to reset the dns-server daily? We need more information. OS, service pack, errors in evenlog?

2) advise: read a good book about Windows because without any background it's useless to answer this question. I give it a try:
Steps for creating a windowsdomain:
- install OS
- configure dhcp/dns
- run dcpromo to create the domain
- create useraccounts
- make computers member of the domain
- create policies/logonscripts

I forgot to mention that I will want to get the new server to take over the old domain which is already setup.

And I have to reset the DNS daily to get the DN forward to work properly.  We have a website that you can access from the outsite world, but not in the building.  The only to access our website from time to time is to reset the DNS server.   Once we do that, I can access the page fine.
