  • DHCP/VLAN - sigh...

    Hi, hopefully this is fairly straightforward...

    I need to install multiple vlans on one l3 switch and have the clients get the IP from a dhcp server. As i understand it all i need is a decent l3 switch that will allow me to set up ip helpers pointed to the dhcp server. but i have two questions:

    1) will sbs 2008 dhcp support the correct type of multiple scops that i need? ie can i configure scopes for vlans in sbs or do i need full server 2008
    2) whether its in sbs 2008 or just 2008 can anyone give me a point in the right direction on how i configure dhcp scopes for vlans? i've had a poke round and i cant see the settings anywhere.

    thanks! Communications

    I don't think SBS has such a limitation, but anyway just create DHCP scopes as you would normally do.
    Just keep different subnets as you are currently using.

        DHCP in SBS2008 IS DHCP in Windows Server 2008. It is just that the wizards will set up a default scope for you (the VLAN that SBS sits on). You will have to set up the other scopes manually - and remember if you re-run the wizard(s), check to see if DHCP has been reset to default. You will also need DHCP relay agents on your switch, I believe - to make sure that the addresses are distributed. Also ensure that your firewall does not mistakenly block your internal DHCP traffic between segments.
