In this post, you will learn how to configure DHCP to dynamically collaborate with DNS and WINS in Windows Server 2008.Under Windows NT, DNS was static and had to be manually altered to make changes.
Clearly, there is not a great deal of clarity in the terminology that various people apply to these modes by which Samba servers are updated.
For example, a client machine receives an IP address from DHCP and then DHCP automatically (as long as it is configured to support DDNS) passes along the host information for that machine to the DNS service.
This feature alone can save an administrator a lot of valuable time.
So it is to be hoped that the notes in this chapter will make a positive difference by assuring that someone will be saved a lot of discomfort.
For those companies considering an upgrade to Microsoft Windows Server 2008, it is very important to understand how DHCP and DNS work together to power Windows Server 2008.
