adding additional DHCP scope to SBS 2003
Posted on 2013-05-15
SBS is currently managing DHCP clients on the LAN. It is running one DHCP server on 192.168.168.x.
I am adding a VLAN on 192.168.20.x, which will also need a DHCP server.
If I right click on DHCP from within the DHCP applet, I have the option to 'Add server' If I right click the existing server (192.168.168.x), I have the option to add a scope.
The current scope is 192.168.168.1-192.168.168.254 with about 10 blocks of excluded addresses. The new VLAN will need a DHCP scope of 192.168.20.100-192.168.20.200.
Would I add a scope to the existing DHCP server on vlan1, or a new DHCP server for vlan2?
Is there any chance this will effect or interfere with the existing DHCP settings; is there a way to backup the current settings?
