Wrong Server Assigning DHCP Addresses

Please help urgent

We have two Domains in different locations connected by a 10MB Fibre link. Domain A is using DHCP Server Domain B Static addresses.
We want to change Domain B to Dhcp but when we have tried clients in Domain b recieve the addresses from the DHCP server in Domain A.
The Domains are connected using a Cisco Catalyst 2950 Switch.

Are the two domains seperated by IP network?  Are they on the SAME IP network or are they routed?  If they're routed, you could turn off DHCP forwarding (called IP Helper in Cisco land).

I assume you're on different subnets, so killing DHCP relay should do it for you.

this can be fixed by the DHCP administrator.

normally, location segregation would be accomplished by using a router or a different subnet.
you will need to reserve client "seats" manually for the computers.
a client seat will allow you to reserve a specific IP or range of IP's for a single computer or group of computers that meet certain criteria.

the easiest way is to create seats for computer names. depending on your DHCP server, some will allow booleans in the criteria. for example, if all computer names in site A begin with the letter A and all in site B start with the letter B.... then you can create a reserve IP pool for all computer names A* (all beginning with the letter A). and of course you would exclude B*, then vice versa at the other site.

hope that helps.

If your mask is 255.255.255.x, which it should be, you're on different subnets.

the mask for both is 255.255.255.0

192.168.100.x is one network, and 192.168.1.x is another network.

The switch is set to relay DHCP requests, so server a is able to dish them to domain b.  If you disable the relay, the issue will end.
