Hi All

we are looking for a DHCP server solution for the scale of:

  • 700-1000 subnets(pools/scops), we are using a DHCP relay agent.
  • 5000-10000 served devices.

Everyware I read I see that DHCP doesn’t require many resources.

But is it current for setup with this amount of subnets?

Which HW specs would you recommend? Considering DHCP will be this server only rule.

I'm planning to use windows servers (standard or Essentials)

I'll appreciate any comments/tips.

Thanks
