I have a server 2012 DC running DHCP and I'm out of IP addresses to lease.  What are my options?  Was thinking to change to a class B network but that would entail a lot to re-configure all of my devices (APs, routers, printers, etc.).  I currently have a scope 192.168.120.x.  I was doing some research and came across the superscope or multicast scope.  I've never worked with these or configured them before.  I would like to keep my 120.x scope and add a second one (192.168.121.x) but not sure of the repurcussions.  Both scopes will need to work as if they are in the same LAN and can access same network resources.  I also have 2 site-to-site VPN tunnels that I'm thinking I may need to add the second scope to.  Any advice on best approach to take?  Like i mentioned, I'd like to keep existing scope intact.  Thank you in advance.
