Using DHCP to Manage Servers

There is a thread from about 9 years ago that I was reading when looking into whether we should change the servers in our environment to DHCP.

Here is the Link.

DHCP addressing vs Static addressing for Servers

It seems that most of the common concerns can be mitigated quite easily these days.

-Have a failover DHCP cluster for redundancy -Use DHCP Reservations -port and network security to prevent rogue dhcp servers

It seems that there is a real divide between the static people and the DHCP camp, and I would like to get a better understanding of both sides.

Why aren't more people moving to DHCP for their server environment? Is it because that's the way it has always been done, and people don't like change?

I feel that the centralized network management is a huge plus, but there are people here who are dead set against it.
