You are the network administrator of a Windows 2003 network that uses DHCP to configure client information. Due to company growth, you are currently in the process of adding an additional subnet to the network. You have decided to install a DHCP Relay Agent on the new subnet to pass client information across the router between the clients and the DHCP server. Where would be the best place to install the DHCP Relay Agent on the remote subnet? Choose the best option from those listed below.

a) On a computer running the DHCP service.
b) On a computer running the DNS service.
c) On a computer running NAT with automatic addressing enabled.
d) On a computer running ICS.




Correct Answer(s):

b) On a computer running the DNS service.


Explanation:

While it may not be recommended to install the DHCP Relay Agent on a computer that is already running a resource intensive service, installing the DHCP Relay Agent on a computer running the DNS service is the only option that can be considered from those provided.



Incorrect Answer(s):

a) On a computer running the DHCP service - The DHCP Relay Agent can not be installed on a computer running the DHCP service.
c) On a computer running NAT with automatic addressing enabled - The DHCP Relay Agent can not be installed on a computer running NAT with this configuration.
d) On a computer running ICS - The DHCP Relay Agent can not be installed on a computer running ICS.

===============================================
So a DHCP relay agent cannot be configured on the same server as one that has DHCP, NAT, or ICS?
Decide what to be and go be it.

    Correct. If the server already has dhcp, my guess is there would be no need to be a relay agent since it is already handing out addresses.
