configuring 2 seperate dhcp scopes on one server

i have a windows 2003 dhcp server which already has a scope of 192.168.112.x through to 192.168.112.y

this provides ip settings to all clients on the network.

i would like to use the same server and configure another scope on it (which will be different to the ip scheme the actual server uses) and have only certain clients connect to it.

the new scope will be 10.250.0.x through to 10.250.0.y

so my question is - how can i configure the server and clients (xp clients) so only certain clients pick up the 10.250.0.x address and all other clients pick up the 192.168.112.x settings?

You can configure the Scope in the same server as you have configured 192.x

Then if your switch (Network Switch) have option for IP helper then give the IP of your DHCP Server in your switch config. This way all your clients who are in 10.x VLAN can go to DHCP server specified and pick the IP.

Else you may configure the DHCP relay in your 10.x VLAN which will do this job for you.

Hope this helps
