Win2003 DHCP. How does having multiple scopes work?
Posted on 2006-05-08
I am new to DHCP. I have a network which is 192.168.0.x range (so only supports 254 machines) and we have about 270 machines :) Thankfully they have not always all been on at once, however lately we are running into troubles.
I was wondering what the easiest way to assign more ip's. Can I just add an additional scope in DHCP say for 192.168.1.x range? Then when the first scope runs out, it will start allowing people to retrieve IP's from this second scope?
The 2003 Server I have has 2 network cards, both connected to the same physical network.
Any ideas would be great... or perhaps something completely different :)
