Agreed. DHCP is for clients - if you NEED to know where your box is (ie a server!) - use a static address on your local net. If you are going to be a decent DBA, you really need to understand all aspects of a system - that includes the system/cpu/memory usage and configuration, SAN, network AND database layers. And then - you will need to also understand (to some degree at least) the application and how it uses the database. Received on Sat Jan 31 2009 - 20:25:33 CST
