One of the companies I support has their SonicWALL firewall issuing the DHCP server addresses to the Windows 10 client computers.
I recently installed two physical Server 2016 servers and am now being told that it will be better to move the DHCP role from the firewall to the servers.
Some people have said that it is best to have the SonicWALL TZ600 router assign the DHCP addresses in case the Server 2016 servers go down.
The Server 2016 servers are only being used as domain controllers and for group policy for the Windows 10 client computers. The security settings are such that if the domain controller can't be reached the users can still logon to their Windows 10 computers. This organization has all of their files saved in the cloud and the servers aren't used to store anything.
The servers and network printers are all using static IP addresses.
What are the advantages & disadvantages of having the Server 2016 servers assign the DHCP addresses instead of SonicWALL hardware router?
