Service category: Network & Connectivity
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client server protocol. It allows the distribution of configuration parameters necessary for the operation of the IP-network (like subnetmask, default gateway, IP address). It is delivered by a central DHCP-server. It is used mainly (but not exclusively) by mobile devices like notebooks, tablets and IP-phones.
DHCP is provided in some parts of the kiz ip infrastructure possibly as an extension for the static ip addresses.
- Operation of two servers for the central DHCP service. One is productive and one is designed as backup.
- Nightly synchronization between productive and backup system.
- The fail-over is done manually in case of needs.
- For every subnet a DHCP-helper is configured on the corresponding router, who is handling the requests between client and server.
- The DHCP service is provided in the following networks:
- VoIP phones on the campus of Ulm University
- managed desktops in the central administration of Ulm University
- some workgroups that require DHCP
All persons and departments who use network devices in one of the DHCP-supplied networks.
