change 2kserver from DHCP to static

By symesd ·
Is there a white paper out there that explains how to change my Windows 2000 Server from getting its IP address from our NT4 DHCP PDC to having a static IP. Something about the Resource Records?

Resource records are part of DNS. In the new DNS scheme for windows 2000 and active directory the DNS system you use has to support SRV, or service records. This is how computers on the network find the appropriate resources when serching for a service. Its like the hidden 16th character of a netbios name... In answer to your question. If you are looking for you the same address time after time, simple create a reservation in the DHCP scope. Otherwise simply change the settings on the addapter right at your windows 2000 server to a static address. Just be sure that you identify all the other parameters that are assigned dynamically by the server.( you will have to type those in as well) If you decide to simply make a reservation on the DHCP server will can avoid making all of these manual changes. As far as documents are concerned, if you search Microsoft's site for "DHCP Scope options" and "SRV's" and "DDNS" you should find the material you are looking for.

This is what we tried, but it made the server not seen by the workstations. I set the IP, WINS, DNS Primary, DNS Secondary and the gateway. Is there nothing else to it for a server?
