Assigning IP addresses to clients based on the general criteria

I was wondering if it was possible to set up various DHCP scopes and assign clients IPs from different scopes depending on general criteria.

The main reason I want to do this is that I want to give VPN clients addresses from a different scope with different scope options than local users.  I would also like this to be all administered from the same place.

Is this possible?

Hi snowburnd,

getting tricky there, i know you can have different scopes with different adress ranges, but have never seen a way to base it on criteria.....

This should already be possible via RRAS - I think you can assign a range of IPs, which can be a different scope.

I saw that in the RRAS settings, but I was wondering if it was possible to do this through a scope assigned at the DHCP server instead of a pool assigned at the RRAS server.  

What is the point of having multiple scopes on a single server if you can't assign them to different groups?

The Pool is set based on available scopes, this is pretty-much the only way you can tell the server what to assign remote clients.

There is such a thing as secure DHCP and you might be able to use those same configuration settings as the criteria by which to segregate your users:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Microsoft_Network/Q_21695399.html

It's going to take me a while to figure out the best way to implement this, but I think isd503 is the closest I'm going to get.

I understand about the static IP pools in the RRAS configuration, but that was just one implimentation of this I was hoping for.  I would have liked to have been able to assign IP addresses based on VPN, Wireless connectivity and other criteria also so that I could look at the IP address and know immediately what the network thinks the client's connectivity is.

Thanks for all the answers.
