Hi, guys how are you doing?I used to work in SBS 2003 and right now I am asked to install and configure a new server 2003 standard edition for a new company having work station 120 computers are connected and my question is, before I start installation and configuration, I need to prepare for it. Here are the following questions I have to ask 1. What type of class IP Address shall I use? Is it alright to use class B IP Address? 2. After installing and configuring DNS, Active Directory, I want to make this server as a “DHCP server”. But some Network Administrators said “you don't have to make this server as DHCP server, because you will have slow network I don't understand what they are saying? As I read about DHCP server, it will assign an IP Address Automatically. But slow network connection...? I don’t know about that 3. Configuration of a ROUTER, the manager of the company told me that soon they will have a STATIC IP Address from ISP. So, shall I wait for this address before installing and configuring DHCP server? In theory as I read during configuration of DHCP server, there is an option “forward queries” if you have DNS from ISP. But I did not tried it before, I mean don't know how to do it 4. For instance, my DHCP server (1st DC, IP = 126.96.36.199), if I reserved An IP-Address during configuration of DHCP, (reserved address = 188.8.131.52); can I make this IP Address as 2nd Domain controller? Please guys help me I don’t have more experience and knowledge Thank you very much
