Best Practices Analyzer for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol: Security

Updated: February 15, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The topics in this section can help you bring DHCP that is running on Windows Server 2008 R2 into compliance with security configuration best practices. Content in this section is most valuable to administrators who have completed a Best Practices Analyzer scan of DHCP and who want information about how to interpret and resolve scan results that identify areas of DHCP that are noncompliant with security configuration best practices.

The Best Practices Analyzer applies security configuration rules to identify settings that might require modification for DHCP to perform optimally. Security configuration rules can help prevent setting conflicts that can result in error messages or prevent DHCP from carrying out its prescribed duties in an enterprise.
