What are the advantages and disadvantages of creating subnets on a 2003 server network?

    Accepted Solution

    Subnetting will allow you to use Sites and Services to divide up your locations by subnet, and deploy DC's to take care of those sites.

    It also allows for VLANs to cut down on broadcast domains.

    In DHCP it allows scopes to be tailored for the particular subnet, and get assigned IPs in that subnet range.
