The CentOS ecosystem, have we an option that will replace it? So you have a server or many more. You are using programs native to CentOS, and you’re worried about patches and updates going forward. We are here to say, worry not. The community has got you!
Most of us know that a DHCP server is used to assign, and manage/track, IP addresses to the various devices on our network. Without a DHCP server, we would have to manually set, and track, a unique IP address for every device on our network, as well as set the proper network mask, DNS servers, and a default gateway address.
Networks especially ones with hosts of at least 50, need some sort of auto configuration for the network. It would be tedious to have to manually configure every host on a network or new hosts as well. Here we will look into creating a DHCP Server to automate this addressing of hosts under Ubuntu Server.
