Currently our Network is on Class-C network segment but it was poorly configured to ALL static ip addresses and NO DHCP at all. Now our network has extended so far that very soon we'll run out of IP addresses. I don't have a lot IP management background as it relates to switches and routers, but DHCP configuration that I can do. Now, the BIG Question is???? what's the process of switching from a CLASS-C to a CLASS-B network segment? Do we need to hire an expert to do this or it's something I can setup a DHCP and point all the servers, NATed devices, workstations to it? We've a very complicated network.......our systems talk to other systems around the country 24/7 and all the mission critical applications MUST be ONLINE at ALL Times.
If I need to explain further, please let me know.
