Hi  @ReggieDaMole 



It is possible to use a 2016 DHCP server with 2008R2 DC. We are currently having this working in our live production and they are talking to each other as normal.


I reckon The "Dynamic Host Configuration (DHCP)" Protocol works on different boxes, you should even be able to provide DHCP even via a linux server.


Thank you


Ok great thanks Dav!
