Where's the DHCP?
One of the questions I've seen come up regarding the technical issues regarding SBS Aurora is where is the DHCP on the box.
Well it's on "a" box but not on Aurora as it will be shipped. And the reason is that Aurora's intent is to be the first domain server after a peer to peer setting and that DHCP will be on the router/firewall. To make it easier for the transition on Aurora you don't have to change the router at all, the server will have a dynamic IP and pick up the IP address from the server.
That doesn't mean you can't install it and enable it just like it is in SBSv7. In fact it will be an item we'll be documenting in the Aurora build document.
But to make it a painless transition from peer to peer Aurora will assume the DHCP is turned on the router.
