I'm guessing the auditors would not like the IBM DHCP server since most of
them can't spell "i" without help. The server works just fine, however it
might not be quite as updated as one from Microsoft or on a Linux
distribution.

In the end things like DHCP, DNS, etc while they run just fine on IBM i are
usually left to external devices. I advocate a physical server since most
virtualization software relies on DNS too much, and that makes recoveries
somewhat more difficult. Backups virtualized, no sweat, primary, that
should have it's own hardware. (face it a 1U server is really cheap)

Bossman says IBM told him not to run DHCP on the IBM i server so we have a
Windoze server handling that. It seems DHCP can run on IBM i, but I can't
get a straight answer about why running DHCP on IBM i is "bad". Can anyone
shed light on this? Do you run DHCP for your LAN on the IBM i? If not, what
solution do you use for your workplace LAN?

Thanks.
