I am by no means an expert, but have basic knowledge of setting up a single IP adress range less than 250. Our company was taken over and merged with another. I need to create a new domain and i would like to deploy ipam. There are in excess of 350 users and devices. So here are my questions :

1. If i create 2 scopes on one dhcp server, what will determine who gets what IP ( the 2 ranges would be 180.10.100.xxx and 180.10.101.xxx with a subnet of 255.255.254.0.
2. Do i create a superscope by combining the 2 and then the same question remains. What will determine who gets what ip?
3. I am assuming that the 180.10.101.xxx will not be able to ping or see devices on the 180.10.100.xxx range.

I will be running 2 domain controllers for fail over with both running dhcp and DNS. I've hit a wall on this. Please help.

use the 172.16.x.x class b private ip address range don't even think of using the 180.x.x.x range as they are public addresses that are assigned to someone

1. Using 180.x.x.x is not advisable. Use 192.168.100.x or 172.16.x.x as they are reserved for private use.
2. Young may create a single scope using netmask 255.255.254.0 as this will allow up to 510 hosts.
3. i would devide the network into several VLANs, using managable Switches and an inhouse Router just to devide the network into several segments for easier  troubleshooting. You than may configure DHCP-Relay on every VLANS-Interface of the Router so the dhcp-requests will be assigned to the correct scope on the DHCP-Server.
