Re: Down with DHCP!!!!

LOL ... I wish I could get my management TO switch to DHCP. We have about 2000-2500 client machines at an educational 
institution. Yes, we have a database (actually, on a spreadsheet -- a DB might work better), but it is constantly out 
of date. In addition, users may make changes on their own complicating things. And when we opened a new campus with two 
new technology buildings, four of us spent the better part of three days simply configuring the workstations -- 
remember, you have to configure IP, SN, GW, DNS, etc.

If you really want to be secure, you can do a static MAC-to-IP association with DHCP assignment. This is similar to the 
old RARP which gave rise to DHCP.
