Best Practice when setting up new Server

BBrayton asked
Last Modified: 2020-02-20
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.
