Restrict DCHP  / Issue different Default Gateway to Domain Members

Is it possible to restrict issuing of DHCP leases to Domain Members only? Or to issue a different default gateway based on Domain Membership?

From what I know already and research so far it does not look to be possible.

Group Policy currently points Domain Members to an ISA Proxy Server via IE Settings.
I would like to ensure that non-domain members which connect to the network are either directed to the Proxy or, directed to a different Default Gateway (which is on a connection which is restricted via another method.).

Is the only way to do this for the Router/Firewall that is normally issued as the default gateway (and is the Gateway for the ISA Server) to only accept web traffic from the ISA Server?

Or is there a way to only issue DHCP Leases to Domain Members?
Given PXE booting exists I'm assuming DHCP is picked up long before Domain Credentials are checked for?

You could do it if you want to input the MAC Address of each machine for a reserved DHCP lease, but that is even more maintenance than static IP addresses.  I don't think it is possible, though, outside that.

That is not an option. It would be an administrative nightmare as there are approximately 200 client machines on the network.

You could VLAN those machines and have a seperate DHCP scope for them...

Hmm.. yes, though I don't know if the Switches in use support multiple VLan's.

If I were to do that I would have to then have multiple DHCP servers - connecting each to an appropriate VLan, right?

No, you can have multiple scopes on one DHCP server.  I use one Server 2003 DHCP server to farm out 97 different scopes for 92 different locations.

Try to search the DHCP option classes.
With this configuration you can assign classes to to the users and each Class gets its own DHCP configuration.
