sbs 2011 running without DHCP (configured on router instead)...good or bad idea
Posted on 2013-06-10
I've always ran DHCP on SBS or any server and more and more the VOIP installers are insisting it run from the router. I understand their concerns and how bad VOIP quality is if not setup with QOS, VLAN's etc however what I don't understand is how they feel a phone system takes precidence over a server with email, permissions, sql, active directory, etc...both which need DHCP to work.
With this said what are your thoughts on running DHCP from a router so the VOIP phones will work? I've never done this and 99% sure I won't this time however before talking with the VOIP tech thought I'd pick EE's brains.
