I at work we use a class B network address 172.16.0.0.
My manager has configured a scope in dhcp. The range of the scope is 172.16.1.1 - 172.16.1.254.
The addresses in this scope are over 90% used so my manager created a superscope with the second scopes range being 172.16.2.1 - 172.16.1.254. All of the above addresses use the default subnet mask 255.255.0.0.
Now we are having problems with this superscope setup as hosts renewed on scope B for testing cannot ping servers on the original scope.
I believe a relay might correct this issue?
I was under the impression that a class B address could support 65534 hosts on a single network address.
Can anyone advise me how this is done and can be configured for the network at work?
