Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides IP addresses to computers on many parts of campus and in the residence halls.
DHCP allows administrators to manage network host assignments from a single DHCP server. This method helps reduce the work required when managing a large network.
Texas A&M IT offers a university wide DHCP service that can be viewed through the Infoblox interface. Texas A&M IT recommends all departments move to this service, however departments are allowed to manage their own DHCP. If you choose to manage your own DHCP server, please follow the steps below.
IP addresses and mappings to domain names for most Texas A&M machines are assigned and maintained using Infoblox. Many domain names are placed in the tamu.edu root domain. However, subdomains and .org domains can be registered.
Note for administrators with network-based access lists: The following IP address space is used on campus. To ensure that all campus users can access your service, please include the following address space in your access lists.
