If you create a GPO and go to Policies\Windows Setings\Security Settings\System Services
Go to DHCP Client and set it for Automatic.

You can use a start up script in group policy that will change the settings over to DCHP when the client machine boots up.

The script to use is located here:http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scr....mspx?mfr=true

I personally would not recommend to assign dynamic IP to servers as this can lead you in trouble some day or the other,for server assign static IP address or if there is hard and fast requirement you can use dhcp reservation for the same.

I would recoomend static IP to servers and dynamic IP to cleint PC.
