Using AP as backup DHCP server
When my last Win98 "server" failed - the main problem I had in the school was the lack of DHCP server to let them print and go onto internet.
So I changed the an AP into a router so that I could use it as DHCP server as an emergency device.
Now I've got a proper w2k3 server up and running I was about to swap to using it for DHCP only but I'm thinking that I should maybe keep the two of them running at the same time to provide auto-backup but I'm wondering if there is something I've not though about that would prevent this being a good idea.
I only use the w2k3 server as file/print/dns/dhcp server - I don't use it as a domain controller/AD.
Any one do this?
Any thoughts welcome :)
