SBS2008 - Manually configuring PCs on a remote office to ensure ipconfig has the same options as DHCP at the main office
Posted on 2014-10-09
I have a customer who has SBS2008 and two remote offices connected via VPN to their head office.
The two remote offices only have very simple routers that only do very basic DHCP and cannot supply DHCP Options.
What settings to I have to manually set to ensure that the PCs in the remote offices have exactly the same ipconfig setup as if they had gotten a DHCP lease from the SBS2008 server in the main office ?
The obvious ones are manually setting DNS to the IP address of the SBS2008 server with the local router as the secondary DNS.
What else needs to be manually configured ?
