  • Configure a DHCP reservation 
  • Configure DHCP options
  • Configure client and server for PXE boot
  • Configure DHCP relay agent
  • Authorize DHCP server

Vocabulary
automatic allocation: In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a method by which a DHCP server permanently assigns an IP address to a client computer from a scope. 

centralized DHCP infrastructure: In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a deployment model in which all of the DHCP servers are placed in a single location, such as a server closet or data center, and a DHCP relay agent is installed on each subnet, to enable the broadcast traffic on each subnet to reach the DHCP servers.

DHCP relay agent: A software component that receives the DHCP broadcast traffic on a subnet and then sends it on to particular DHCP servers on one or more other subnets.
distributed DHCP infrastructure: In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a deployment model in which at least one DHCP server is installed on each of the network’s subnets.

dynamic allocation: In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a method by which a DHCP server assigns an IP address to a client computer from a scope, or range of IP addresses, for a specified length of time. 

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP): A service that automatically configures the Internet Protocol (IP) address and other TCP/IP settings on network computers by assigning addresses from a pool (called a scope) and reclaiming them when they are no longer in use.

manual allocation: In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a method by which a DHCP server permanently assigns a specific IP address to a specific computer on the network. 
preboot execution environment (PXE): A network adapter feature that enables a computer to connect to a server on the network and download the boot files it needs to run, rather than booting from a local drive.
