Q

Can we use a Windows 2000 DHCP server in an NT 4.0 domain?

We currently have an NT domain. We intend to migrate to Windows 2000 by the end of the year. Could we use a Win2k DHCP server in an NT domain, or should we stick to NT DHCP servers till we move to a Win2k domain?

We currently have an NT domain. We intend to migrate to Windows 2000 by the end of the year. We have a situation where we have to replace our DHCP servers. Could we use a Win2k DHCP server in an NT domain, or should be stick to NT DHCP servers till we move to a Win2k domain?
You can use the Windows 2000 DHCP server in the NT 4.0 domain -- no problem there. However, when you upgrade you will need to ?Authorize? the server once the system realizes it is now in an Windows 2000 domain.
