DHCP lease Assigning with AD

Hello

I was wondering what happens with a DHCP Server assigning leases if there are no links to Domain Controllers available

Can anyone send me links to TechNet or any relevant articles

Cheers



I do not know what you mean by this but a dhcp server is on its own. It does not have any links to AD. It can however auto register dns items for name resolution but that has nothing to do with AD and you have configure this option so it is not mandatory.

If the DHCP server cannot contact an AD Server (WAN link down). Considering it has to be authorised by AD.
Links please as i need something to refer to
Thanks!



DHCP is not authorised by AD. It works at a different level. AD has nothing to do with it unless you use some very specific software that i do not know about. It only distributes IP addresses and might register the name of the computer in the DNS server if you specified that.

Link about what a dhcp server is and what it does:https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/dd448608.aspx



But you do DHCP authorise in AD :-

I wondered what happens in the background for authentication is the DC connectivity is broken



right I'm going to shut up now... you are absolutely right. I never had this issue because I have always used a dhcp server on a DC or non windows dhcp (like watchguard, cisco etc).

My bad... sorry.
