  1. From the menu bar, select File, New, DHCP Server. The Add DHCP Server dialog box is shown.
  2. Server Name. Type either the DNS name or the IP Address of the DHCP server.
  3. Server address (optional). If desired, type the IPv4 or IPv6 address for the server. This is not required, but doing so allows the Management Console to connect to the server by IP Address instead of by name.
  4. Server Type. Click the drop-down list, and select the desired server type.
    • Microsoft with Agent Installed connects to a Microsoft DHCP server that has a DHCP Server Controller installed. If you want to gather the lease history from the DHCP server, you must use this connection method.
    • Microsoft Agent-Free connects to a Microsoft DHCP server that does not have a DHCP Server Controller installed. When using this connection method, it is not possible to gather the lease history from the DHCP server. For further information regarding this connection method, refer to DHCP Servers--Server Access on Remote Computers.
    • ISC connects to an ISC DHCP server.
    • Cisco connects to a Cisco Router that is running DHCP server software. For more information, see Adding a Cisco DHCP server.
    • Kea connect to a ISC Kea DHCP server. 
  5. Use proxy server. If you are adding a Microsoft or a Cisco DHCP server you can specify the location of the DHCP Server Controller by clicking the Use proxy server checkbox and entering the DNS name or IP Address of the machine running the DHCP Server controller. This option allows the system to connect to DHCP servers in different forests where a cross-forest trust does not exist. It also allows a non-Windows version of Men & Mice Central to manage Microsoft DHCP servers.
  6. Click OK. You are connected to the server. Once connected, the name of the newly added server displays under DHCP Servers in the Object Section. (You may need to click the plus (+) sign next to DHCP Servers to see it.)
