DHCP BOOTP Boot File Configuration

Updated: December 11, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) is a host configuration protocol developed before Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP improves on BOOTP and resolves its limitations as a host configuration service.

To configure your DHCP server to assign Internet Protocol (IP) address information to BOOTP clients, you must add a reservation for each BOOTP client. The reservation builds an association between the media access control (MAC)  address and the IP address.
