How do I stop separate DHCP service offering IPs to the wrong clients ?
Posted on 2001-08-16
Bit of a bizarre one this so here goes:
Main network in the office has a DHCP server offering IP's etc to all clients. No problem.
We have a Norton Ghost server that is connected to the office LAN on the first NIC card and gets its IP address from the Office address space.
The Ghost server also has a secondary NIC card which is connected to a hub, and the prospective ghost clients are also connected to that hub, to create a separate LAN.
Now, the Ghost Server is running DHCP on a different IP range, so that any ghost clients connected to the hub automatically receive an IP address from the Ghost Server, so we can multicast images etc..
The problem is, when office clients ask for a new IP address, occasionally the Ghost Server is quickest to respond and so the office client ends up with an IP address which is in the wrong range and therefore breaks... SO...
How can I configure the Ghost Server DHCP, to only give out IP addresses to clients that have requested them on the second NIC card ? -- Is is possible to bind the DHCP client to a particular NIC card ?
Any suggestions gratefully received!
