Hi Chris, Here's a real quick way to find out (if you already know your server's static IP address).

1- Go to a workstation and log into the domain
2- Open the Command Prompt console
3- Type in the command: ipconfig /all
4- This will display the IP address of its DHCP server. All you have to do is determine if that IP matches your server in question.

Another way...Which is the most accurate.

1- Go to the server in question
2- Go to Control Panel, Services
3- Chech to see if the service "Microsoft DHCP Server" is started or not.
4- Obviously, if it is started, then it is a DHCP server (but now you might want to check the DHCP scope/configuration)

Hope that helps!
