Boxes that are members of an AD will not accept leases from a dhcp
server that has not been authorized as a dhcp server in the AD.

This setup is for a home network of stand-alone boxes.

And at the end of the article, they are also leasing addresses to
Linux boxes and checking whether they are successful in the
dhclient-ethX.leases file.
