Hello - I just want to get some general guidance on this.  We're at capacity on our 192.168.1.x /24 subnet, and are adding a 2nd subnet to our DHCP server for 192.168.2.x / 24.  We've had Cisco add another VLAN to our network so that both VLANs 1& 2 can talk to each other.  What I need clarity on is when adding the 2nd subnet to the DHCP server, how do I control what clients take addresses from 1 subnet as opposed to the other?  Do I just statically address machines to control that?  Or do I NEED to worry about that at all?  Will DHCP automatically hand out addresses from the 2nd one when the 1st one gets down to 0 IPs left?

Thanks for your help.
