Tech note on BOOTP support with Windows 2000 server and Windows Server 2003 DHCP service.
The DHCP service included with Windows 2000 server and Windows Server 2003 include support for BOOTP. A scope can be configured to allocate address' to either DHCP clients, BOOTP clients, or both.
Unlike other implementations of BOOTP, a reservation (BOOTPTAB file entry) is not required. The DHCP service will allocate an IP address in the same manner as a DHCP client.
The 833 access servers have BOOTP enabled by default. A BOOTP allocated address will over-ride any configured IP address. This option can be disabled in the IP configuration.
The Jetstream 6000 always transmits a BOOTP request at bootup. This option cannot be disabled. The BOOTP offered address will over-ride any configured IP address.
The Iolan+ server will transmit a BOOTP request only if there is no configured IP address.
The Ioprint+ has DHCP/BOOTP enabled by default. This option can be disabled in the TCP/IP configuration.
Note: if you want to allocate the same address to a client then create a reservation in the scope.
