Hello guys and as always thanks for your time and expertise.
I have a question about a site I'm setting up or cleaning up at work.  In sites and services, I see one subnet for this site: ex: 10.50.    However, DHCP is configured for the subnet to be 255.255.255 and the tech on site is telling me he has two subnets: 10.50.5 and 10.50.20.  Again, with that info in mind, let me again stress that in sties and services the subnet listed for this site is 10.50.
My question is should I modify sites and services and make two subnets for this site: a 10.50.5 and a 10.50.20 or should I leave things alone.   Are things configured correctly or would I improve the process with what I have in mind.  Your help and advice are greatly appreciated.

You can leave it as 10.50 because it will pick up both the .5 and .20 subnets in there.  
I'm assuming .5 and .20 are both in the same physical area and you want them both to be in that site.
Thanks

Yes Mike - both .5 and .20 are in the same physical area.  So you're saying have the general 10.50 will service .5 and .20.  And htere shouldn't be any performance hit with this setup either - is that correct?  Appreciate your timely response.

Yeah there won't be any perf hits.

You can always type

Set L

from a few machines just to make sure they are authenticating to the DC in their site.  Your setup is fine.

Thanks
