I have four locations each with about 20 PCs per location.  For this question I will refer to the locations as A, B, C, and D

I have 2 DHCP servers at location A, and 1 DHCP server at location C.  The other two locations (B, and D) do now have any DHCP servers.

Location A is on subnet 10.1.192.x (Router is
Location B is on subnet 10.1.194.x (Router is
Location C is on subnet 10.1.196.x (Router is
Location D is on subnet 10.1.198.x (Router is

I have a SuperScope defined on the two DHCP servers in Location A.
Can these servers hand out IP addresses for Locations B, C, and D, or just A?

When doing some testing with DHCP server located in Location A, I was not able to get an IP address using DHCP at Location B.
