Point Windows 7 to Specific DHCP Server?
Posted on 2015-01-13
I have DHCP setup on two different pieces of equipment in my current environment, not my choosing. Both scopes are on VLAN 1 with different ranges.
1) DHCP on a Windows 2008 R2 Server - For Virtual PCs (VMware View)
2) DHCP on a Cisco IOS Switch - Preboot for IP phones with options, which point them to reboot on the Voice VLAN
The IP Phones are having problems registering to the Windows 2008 R2 Server, hence the reason for using the Cisco Switch (according to the phone vendor).
The PCs keep pulling DHCP from the Cisco Switch, because it is responding first.
I know i can't do MAC filtering for DHCP on the Cisco Switch.
So, what are my other options?
Can I point my Windows 7 PCs to a specific DHCP server? If so, how?
Thank you Experts!
