DHCP on Windows Server 2008 - Without domain
Hi there I am experimenting with Ghost software (FOG Project). Since I have DHCP on my router (it's one of those routers you cannot configure.) I want to create a DHCP Server on my Windows Server 2008 so I can customise network booting.
I tried to setup DHCP on the server however I came across a snag. Because we run on a WORKGROUP I could not state a domain name to use. My question is - Is there a way to run a DHCP on Windows Server 2008 without setting up a domain or DNS?

Haven't tried it on W2k8, but it should be fairly easy - provided you've configured the server with the DHCP server role.

You shouldnt have to put in a domain name or DNS name if you dont want too. Worse case you can fill in those spaces with whatever you want and then go back into the DHCP service and remove those.
