we have nearly 700 plus computers in the network and having manual ip addressing . I am in the process of going with the static to dynamic . but I have few issues with the current setup .
what is the best way to assign the ip dynamically
firewall level , core switch or OS dhcp server . I hope separate DHCP is the best option ?
major issue is out of 700 PCs nearly 500 pcs have internet access with the firewall via access . All the access give with the IP address level . we did not have link with the AD and the firewall . so how can I keep the same ip address for my internet client . one idea is reserve option in the DHCP . but I don't know the best option is going to be the reserve all most all the users in the network
please share your thoughts
