Have a need for a DHCP server. Is the IOS-one a good choice? The arguments for is: - Easy management and logging - HA, if the IOS-box is protected with UPS etc - No more boxes/computers Reasons why not: - possible security risks(eg IOS DHCP on main router in network) ?? - lack of functionality (option 82 etc)? - etc? I am not an expert on DHCP solutions so what du you reckon? /Fred

You can add arbitrary opions to the IOS DHCP. The big downside is "NO GUI." But I consider that a feature 8-) You want to make sure you write the DHCP database somewhere, or locally store on the router with the HDCP database command.
