I have an IP of 10.25.110.128 255.255.255.128, and my switches are 10.1.2.10-19.  I want to assign my printers 10.1.2.20-30 through dhcp.  My dhcp is 10.25.110.128-255 and I want to use another scope to hand out reserved addess to printers 10.1.2.20-30

Not a problem.

You can have as many DHCP scopes as you like on a MS DHCP server.

You will need to add an IP Helper for the 10.1.2.x VLAN to point to the DHCP server.  When the DHCP server receives a request it notes the source address of the VLAN and replies with an address from a matching scope.

That said with just ten printers I would personally assign static IP addresses.

Cheers,

TCP

well I got the dhcp server to work so it handed out the IP address to the server but I can't get it to print or ping it.

How have you confirmed that DHCP is working?
