DHCP

Hi Experts,

                     I have a doubt related to Authorize option in DHCP. It can be used when DHCP is running in the Domain environment. What this Authorize option does.

When a DHCP server is authorised, then it means that it is authorised to give out DHCP addresses. The DHCP server would have to be a membert of the domain in a Windows environment.

In windows based environment, If DHCP is not authorized by AD whether the DHCP server will provide IP to clients or not .
If it is a domain environment, no. If DHCP server is a domain member and it's not authorized, it won't be able to issue any DHCP leases.

Hi iSiek,

                    Im having a doubt that if DHCP is authorized by AD. Whether DHCP related files or objects will store in AD.
Hi,

open DHCP console and specify server which you want to check.
If it has red down arrow, it's not authorized.
If it has green up arrow, it's authorized.

and remember. After DHCP server is authorized, each scope must be also activated :)

oh, and another simple and quick way is to use NETSH command with DHCP context :) But DHCP context is available only in NETSH on server.

Log on to any windows server and from command-line type:

netsh dhcp show server

it will list all authorized DHCP servers in a domain
