Integrating DHCP with Other Services

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

If you use DHCP servers for Microsoft network clients, you must use a name resolution service. Networks that support clients running Windows 2000, Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional, and Windows Server 2003 use the DNS service to support name resolution. Networks that support clients running versions of the operating system earlier than Windows 2000 must use a form of NetBIOS name resolution, such as WINS. Networks that support both types of clients must implement both WINS and DNS servers.

Windows Server 2003 DHCP provides support for both DNS dynamic updates and secure DNS dynamic updates. DHCP and DNS work together to perform dynamic updates and work with Active Directory to perform secure DNS dynamic updates. DHCP also works with Active Directory to prevent unauthorized DHCP servers from running on the network.

Figure 2.6 shows the process for integrating DHCP with other services.
