Adding new IP range to existing DHCP server
Posted on 2014-03-05
Hey Experts! I haven't had to do this before so before I jump in with both feet, I wanted to make sure I asked the experts what I'm getting into.
One of our existing Windows 2003 servers has the DHCP role and manages the IP range of 172.24.80/81. The state has issued us a second range so we can add a new VLAN. Without getting into the politics of the matter, the new range is 10.43.58/59. This new range will be used by the desktops in the desktop VLAN and should pull from the 10.x IP range.
What changes do I make to the existing DHCP scope? How do I get the desktops to pull from the 10.x range and not the 172.x? I may be over thinking this but I figured I would ask the dumb questions now rather than when things start crashing.
Thanks for your time and assistance.
