Question about 3750 as dhcp server

hi,

With two c3750 switches stacked one customer is  plannig to configure those switches to act as dhcp server for about three thousand clients.

Can this configuration affect to the normal behaviour of the stack?

Could come up some problems with this amount of clients?

Thanks in advance

Personally with that many clients i would look to use something like Microsoft Windows DHCP server. Using switches/routers as DHCP servers is fine for a few vlans or clients but for 3000 it is much easier to manage with a dedicated server.
