Alternate DHCP/TFTP servers in your deployment?

I'm just wondering if others have used alternate DHCP/TFTP servers in their VoIP deployments. Our Cisco branded is nearing end of life, and rather than spending $$$ on another server, we'd like to simply migrated to our existing highly available central DHCP/DNS service. We're using Infoblox right now.

I hope there are others out there doing something similar.

We always use customer's DHCP unless we have a good reason not to. Anything that's capable of supporting custom options will do (which really is any reputable one).

TFTP - we just use CallManager...anything else would be too painful due to the dynamic nature of it's content...

We use the Cisco Switch/Router as the DHCP server for the phones - setting up a seperate scope in each access switch. TFTP we use the CM for ease of management and upgrades of firmware on the IP Phones.
