Microsoft Windows 2000 DHCP server

Scenario
----------

You have a switched network with about 50 Windows 2000 Pro DHCP clients on one physical subnet. All these DHCP clients get TCP/IP configuration from a Windows 2000 DHCP server on same segment, which has one scope defined for this subnet. The switch is connected to two seperate routers,  A and B.

Some DHCP clients need to have router A as default gateway and some require router B to be default gateway.

How is it possible to implement this using scope options but without using "Advanced User Options"?

Thanks.


Hamid

Thank you all for your comments.

I think a good way of asking a question is by setting a scenario which is what I've done. This is no homework. All I was trying to do is to be clear and concise with no ambiguity in my question.

As for this problem, I was trying to find an efficient way of solving my problem without having to visit every workstation that needed a specific TCP/IP  configuration, which is what is needed if one uses the "Advanced User Options". I've already figured out the solution which is to use "client reservations" in the defined scope for the subnet and setting the "router option" for the "client reservations".

The same goes for my other question on DHCH-DNS integration.

Then yes you can.. go in your DHCP manager on your domain controller,  open your dhcp scope and click on the scope options section.

right click on scope options, and click configuration options.

Add value 003 Router, with the address of the gateway.

Voila, next time your client will get a lease, they will be assigned the correct gateway address..
