Sql server & DHCP server

By philip.valder ·
Our windows 2000 server was setup with SQL server running as it is using a database over the internet. if i install DHCP server on to the same machine so as to connect a new lan consisting of win98 machines and mac's, would it affect the sql server?

It depends. The factors involved is how you set up your dhcp scope. Did you set it that everytime a user logs that the gain a new ip address. How many users are going to use the server. How many ip addresses that you are going to serve.
If you have a large LAN that its going to server you will see some degradation during log in.
Personally, I would use the server as a dhcp server. Assigning IP's would not be a great over head on a small LAN. If you have several hundred users go with a stand alone system.

If you want to distribute public ip addresses from your DHCP, yes no problem, But if you want to distribute private DHCP address, it would be better to set up a DHCP server on any Windows NT server o 2000. DHCP is not cpu consumming, it's very stable and is part of that applications that never runs in trouble.
