Replacing AD DNS and DHCP

JumpCloud does not offer DNS or DHCP services as a part of the product. If when deprecating a domain controller that currently provides those services, it may be necessary to determine a suitable replacement.  

JumpCloud does not endorse or recommend any specific solution. Alternatives for DNS services include, but not limited to:
  • Cloud based SaaS options such as AWS® Route 53 or Dyn®
  • Cloud based or local unmanaged options running open source DNS like Bind
Alternatives to DHCP are generally already present in a network. Local hardware like WiFi access points, firewall appliances or other network hardware normally have built in DHCP services. Consult your hardware vendor for the options available on existing equipment.

For either service, it's necessary to determine what the specific service needs are and choose the service that best meets those needs .
