Ciscoworks and DHCP on same server

Hi,

We have a server which runs Ciscoworks LMS 3.0(windows). Is it possible to make the same machine as a windows DHCP server? Will there be any conflict with respect to any services or ports?

Thanks and regards,

Sonu.

Re: Ciscoworks and DHCP on same server

It is possible, but was never tested. There shouldn't be any port conflicts as LMS doesn't use udp/67 or udp/68. But there could be resource conflicts depending on your DHCP server solution. Also, DHCP is a vital network service, and combining LMS and DHCP on the same server opens your DHCP server up to more potential security problems and maintenance issues that keeping it on a dedicated machine.
