Microsoft DHCP Provide Addresses to Different Subnets
Posted on 2016-07-21
I am in desperate need to segment our network (specifically the WiFi clients) by IP address instead of increasing the size from a /24 to a /16. The preference is the have a handful of /24 networks, one for each VLAN.
The problem is I am not certain how to do with this microsoft's Server 2008 R2 server's DHCP.
Ideally, I'd like to segment things using a VLAN and have each VLAN have a different subnet. The DHCP server would/could be a VM and would need to know about each VLAN and which range to provide to which VLAN.
Our Sonicwall firewall can handle virtual interfaces assigned to different VLANs and can therefore be set as the DG for each VLAN and do the routing across them, but the looming question is DHCP for each VLAN.
All of our switches are layer 2 HP switches and are currently doing VLANs for our VoIP traffic which works very well.
How/Can this be done? Is this the right approach?
Any help, direction or suggestions would be appreciated.
