Best Practice when setting up new Server

When I setup a new server is it better to have dhcp and DNS running off the router instead of the server.

The reason why I ask is if the server ever goes down they will still be able to have internet.

Especially if our client is far away.

OK thank you!!

I will setup a test environment with DHCP running on the Router, and the DC controlling DNS because it really has to.

Sounds good. Since you will have a domain controller in the environment, make sure you configure the DHCP server to give out the DC's IP address as a DNS server. (If there's only one DC, it should be the only DNS server that domain members use.)
