Join Ed Liberman for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Windows Server 2016: DHCP.
- [Instructor] In this course, I'm expecting that you already have at least a basic knowledge of Windows Server environments. So it's not an absolute requirement, but it would be very helpful if you have at least some level of background in working with a server environment. And to add to that, if you've ever worked with Windows Server 2016, that'll be that much more helpful. Now if you have an interest in following along and doing some of the demos that I will do as we go through the course, you will see that I have a more sophisticated environment than what is necessary.
I tend to have multiple domain controllers, member servers, clients, and things like that. But what you really need to have in order to follow along, would be at least one server, with Windows Server 2016 of course, to deploy DHCP ott. Additionally, you'll need to have at least one client to receive the IP configuration information from the DHCP server. Now optionally, you would need a second server and that's specifically for one demonstration that I have, which is on DHCP failover.
This is an optional advanced feature. If you're interested in trying to play around with it, then you will have to have a second server in order to do that. But beyond that, that is really all you need to have if you want to follow along with this course.
