A DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server is a network service that automatically assigns IP addresses and other related network configuration parameters to devices on a network. It simplifies the process of network configuration by dynamically allocating IP addresses to devices as they connect to the network.

Adding the DHCP Server Role
To add the DHCP ROLE to a Windows Server 2019 computer, follow these
Domain Name System (DNS) integration
Active Directory integration
Active Directory integration is another feature of the DHCP standard that enables DHCP servers to be authorized within Active Directory. Active Directory integration helps sieve unauthorized servers and maintain a system of only authorized servers within the network. This way, the administrator will fully control the servers allowed in the network.
One disadvantage of this feature is that it works only with Windows 2000 DHCP servers. The implication is that any other version of the DHCP server introduced in the network can escape the Active Directory authorization process.
