I have a Windows 2003 Server Standard RC2 SP1 configured as a member server of a domain. This server does not handle DNS or DHCP. However, I enabled a second NIC card on the server and put that in a different subnet/VLAN from the existing NIC. All I want/need this to do is handle one DHCP scope and DNS for the second NIC's subnet/VLAN. First I the following message:
"Warning-multiple default gateways are intended to provide redundancy to a
single network (such as an intranet or the internet). They will not function
poperly when the gateways are on two separate, dsjoint networks (such as one
on your intranet and one on the internet). do you want to save this
So I removed the default gateway for the second NIC added and did not get the message. I made sure that the DHCP scope was bound to the IP address of the second NIC and that DNS is listen on the second NIC as well.
I cannot get the DHCP server to give out addresses on that subnet. It is as if the scope doesn't exist. I have read through some MS TechNet and EE items but can't seem to determine what the issue is. I will have to sniff a segment to see what the traffic is doing.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? They would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
