Working on spinning up a new DC & DHCP virtual machine at a client site. Noticed the clients are getting DHCP from Cisco ASA 5505.This is a new client and I am not very familiar with the device.
I want to be able to log into the Cisco ASA device(not sure how) and turn off the DHCP so that windows server is DHCP master on this subnet. I don't want competing DHCP server. We can always turn on DHCP on the Cisco if needed
Related question - Client says DHCP is on at the Cisco for 'backup DHCP'. I'm inclined to think this is a manual backup method. Or, it possible the Cisco ASA 5505 is serving as a backup for the Windows DHCP server, and how is that configuration made - such that it determines the Windows DHCP server is down and takes over. I'm not aware of any such config. Setting.
