Windows SBS 2003 svr & VMware

I have a SBS 2003 svr in Vmware. It has 2 net cards, 1 is bridged to the ISP(69.76.188.242), 1 is connect to switch which has SBS  assigned DHCP on(192.168.16.2). And they are working smoothly.

I am planning to have a 3 net card in to bridge to my router(192.168.1.X). My router is doing the DHCP on this scope.  But whenever I enable this net card, the SBS drops it own DHCP(192.168.16.X).

How do I lock the intented SBS DHCP to (192.168.16.X)? or is there any other better way to do this?

hello Chuckwang,

How about manually entering the IP address for the 1 net card?  then it will keep the IP address 192.168.16.x.  You will also need to add that IP as an exemption on the DHCP server.

Beside the ISP one, the remain 2 net cards are manually assigned an IP address. I might not state it clear enough.

ISP net card has 69.76.188.242. it gets this IP through VMware.
SBS DHCP net card, manually 192.168.16.2, and DHCP manage the scope of 192.168.16.x.
Router net card manually 192.168.1.138, subnet 255.255.0.0.

Kewl.  Thanks for the clarification.

So when SBS drops its own DHCP, what is the IP address of the SBS then?

The IP remain the same, but the "services"-> "DHCP Server" got stopped. and  consequently, the "administrator tools"->"DHCP" scope is no longer there.

It sounds like the server is confused on the DHCP service.  See if the SBS DHCP service is authorized and entered in Active Directory.

Check out this link- http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc774845.aspx and this one

I disabled the RRAS, and enable the 3 net card(192.168.1.138). It did the same thing.

Then your good there.  

How about just adding a route to the router so that you can communicate from 192.168.1.X to 192.168.16.x network?

Thanks.  Can you see an area for routing on the edimax?  If not, Disabled NAT on the router and it should bring up an option to do static routing.

Before you proceed and to help me better understand, what are you trying to accomplish by having three NICs on the SBS server?

It doesn't have the routing, but do have the NAT.

I have a router enviroment to start with, and there a few resources that comes handy to get access to. Then I build the SBS for testing and familiar with, and I would like to get to those resources. The SBS is not for usage but testing and learning only.

Last week, I did a 2003 SVR-R2. I know I have quite a few things not correct, but I did get the 2003SVR to get to my router(ourside) network, and my computers on router can all get into the server. But I had 3 DHCPs on it. When I fail to get Exchange svr to install properly, I did the SBS instead.

Thanks.

That is kewl.  I would apt to disable dhcp on the router or the server so you can still maintain your router environment.
