2nd DHCP scope on 2nd NIC?

Currently, the Windows Server 2003 R2 running DHCP has a single scope of 192.168.2.0 /24. The server has a 2nd, currently disabled NIC.

Now, I need to add a 2nd, larger scope to handle the semi-public wifi infrastructure being installed.

I know I can setup a 2nd scope and bind it to the 2nd NIC, but I want this 2nd DHCP scope to be able to hand out addresses ranging from 192.168.10.0 thru 192.168.11.254 (minus the .0, .254, and gateway address of course).

So, what I need to know is how to setup this 2nd scope in DHCP server so that it can pass out approximately 500 addresses.

Everything as normal and set the Subnet Mask to 255.255.254.0. That gives you the range you want.

Is that what you needed to know?

Right-click on DHCP, choose Properties, then the last tab and then 'Bindings' or something like that. There you can check on which network card(s) the server provides DHCP...
