DHCP Reservations vs Static IP addresses
Posted on 2009-05-13
We are running on windows 2003 and have DHCP on two Domain controllers (each have half of the address ranges) We also have DNS with a primary and secondary.
Currently we only reserve a handful of ip addresses for certain boxes, but we have been toying with the idea of moving to static ip's for all our machines (due to some applications not handling reporting very well like our Cymphonix box.)
My question is what is best, placing static ip addresses on the individual machines or have DHCP hand out reserved ip's for the entire company. We have about 100 boxes. Any thoughts or ideas on this would be appreciated.
