My setup is as follows:
Windows Server 2008 is my DHCP Server on a multi-homed network, one network is for my lab projects and its ip is 10.0.0.1/8, the other network is my home network of 192.168.1.1/24. I had this working 6 months again until I brought it down for other reasions which I will not go into. Now I need to have that network back, so I recreated the network pool as follows:
IP Range: 10.0.0.1/8
Exclusions: 10.0.0.1 - 10.0.0.99 and 10.0.0.199 - 10.254.254.254

I think Ive done everything except rebooting (since this is my DC) and even that is a last resort.

Any assistance you can give will be most appreciated.

Apparently I needed to reboot. It appears to be working now :)

Thanks for the effort.
