I need someone to clearly explain what exactly a superscope is. I know that it's a shared-network, however, it seems confusing to implement. I have 2 subnets within the same physical network (ie: 2 floors separated by a router) with the network ID's of 192.168.10.x/255.255.254.0 and 192.168.12.x/255.255.254.0. The router between the floors is capable of forwarding DHCP packets as unicast (relay agent NOT forwarding DHCP broadcast - Cisco 3600). I created a superscope with 2 scopes of the networks mentioned. The result was that clients had problems obtaining IP addresses. When I removed the superscope and left the 2 scopes separated, clients had no problem obtaining IP addresses. Is superscope only effective if the router forwards DHCP broadcast? Should the scopes be separated (not superscope) if the router forwards DHCP unicast packets directly to the DHCP server? Any help would be appreciated.
