This is a philosophical question: Why store this information in both the
servers DHCP database as well as its registry?

For the same reason a hard drive has 2 FAT tables. So they can be reconciled
incase the database is corrupt.

But why the Registry; Why not just a plain old file?

I am reminded of the immortal words of John Belushi from Animal House:

(JB) From Now on, your name is Pinto.
(Pinto) Why Pinto?
(JB) <BURP> WHY NOT?

Well... It seems to me that the registry -- which resides on EVERY Windows
machine -- would have less to do with the specifics of a DHCP server. Why
not the DNS datbase?

For one the DHCP database is just a file so the Registry is a second source
for information. As for using DNS as a backup, DNS doesn't have to be on the
system to use DHCP. Infect technically DNS doesn't have to be used on the
network at all for a DHCP implementation.

I guess what I meant by "... why not DNS" was why not backup the DNS zone in
the registry if your backing up things like DHCP info. --- Mike

My Bad.....

No real need to backup DNS because unlike DHCP a DNS record can be stored
live in multiple places with Secondary Zone's and DNS Zone transfers. Or if
you prefer a more secure method you can store DNS in Active Directory and
replicate it that way. Not to mention the added benefits of Multi-Master
Zones and a few others.

hay rev. Thanks for the response; it makes sense. Guess I'll just have to
live w/ another idiosyncratic fact about how MS designs its environment. ---
