DHCP in Azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    Here I have a doubt that "Is DHCP being supported in Azure such a way that whenever I create a virtual machine, it should be assigned with a IP-pool I configure in DHCP.

    Thanks in advance!

  • DHCP is dobe automaticly in Azure, you don't deploy DHCP role as on local infrastructure.

    You can deploy VNet and define subnet/pool of IPs you want to use. When deploying new VM, you need to specify you want to use that VNet and VM will automaticly be assigned IP from range you created for that VNet.

  • Absolutely agree on Mustafa's solution. Just to let you know. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Server (DHCP server) is not a supported feature on an Azure VM. Microsoft server software support for Microsoft Azure virtual machines.
