Making additional ip addresses available in DHCP
Posted on 2012-04-01
I have a question. I want to know what steps I need to take to 1. Have the router hand out DHCP instead of the domain controller and 2. How to add additional available IP Addresses.
My current setup is this: I have a windows 2003 DC which is configured as the DHCP server also. I want to instead have my router/firewall hand out DHCP. What changes are needed to do this. I know how to turn off DHCP on the DC and turn it on on the router, but what do I need to do in DHCP on the router so that clients that need to authenticate to the DC can reach it? Do I need to put the DNS entries as the DC IP address and the secondary as the IP of the router?
And how do I create an additional subnet to allow for more than the ip addresses in the original DHCP range? I see on the router where I can create additional subnets but how do I make sure that the client computers that need to reach the DC can do so. Does something have to be configured on that end as well?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!
