We have been using our SonicWALL router as the DHCP server. I have been thinking to use our Windows Server 2008 as the DHCP server instead. The major reason is that the IP Address Lease Table in SonicWALL only lists the IP address and its corresponding computer's MAC address, not the computer's name. Recently, we had a two day power outage. Once the power was back, we noticed that many computer's IP addresses were changed. So this becomes another big reason we would like to make the switch.
1. Do you use your router or your Windows Server as the DHCP server?
2. If I do the switch, is there anything I should be aware of?
