Dhcp decentrallized?

Unanswered Question
Oct 22nd, 2008

Hello all

My boss is considering implementing Dhcp on a decentralized basis, in a way so each (layer3) switch on different locations manages its own dhcp-hosts.

In this way we would of course minimize dhcp traffic on our core network, but i wonder if it is standardized to manage dhcp in this way. If so, there has to be some kind of central administration-tool to manage all the dhcp-switches (we are a large organisation) - is there???.

What should i answer my boss...Can this be done and is it recommendable?

Sounds like an administrative nightmare to me. Are you seeing any issues that warrant a change in your DHCP infrastructure?
