I have a fairly urgent question. I need to set up the server in a new location with a new ISP. I have configured the router to use the same IP Pool as the existing settings on the server. I cant login to the old router to see how it was set up but I am wondering if I should be turning off DHCP on the router and letting the Server handle it as it appears thats how it has been working.

This is a new server to me as it was another guy that use to administer it. I do know that when the server was shutdown, the clients could still access the internet.

So should I set the server to serve the DHCP or the router? Or can I do a cross configuration of the two of them for times when the server does go down?

If so how might I go about making the appropriate changes so that the server isn't going to face problems when connecting back to the network?

I appreciate all your help. This is kind of urgent since it will be setup in the network this morning.
