  • About DHCP Server

    Hi ,

    first of all i am not sure that is this a possible using a one DHCP server ..


    I am Having Windows 2003 SP1 installed - Active Directory Installed . Domain =

    Now i am having 100 Machine is 192.168.1.x series. and about 500 systems in 10.x.x.x series.

    Now can i configure my DHCP server as if any clients request 10.x.x.x series IP it will get it from that range and if a client request from 192.168.x.x series IP it will get it from this range ..someone told me this scenario is called rough DHCP setup. but i think this is not possible it so ?

    Please Help ...

    you are probably better off using vlans if you would like to do this. vlans need to be configured in your switches.
    Technology is only as good as those who use it

      If all the clients are on the same subnet then I don't think it's possible unless you use vlan's as the previous poster mentioned. If the clients are on different subnets separated by a router then this is possible without using vlan's but you will need to configure the router as a dhcp relay agent. Maybe I'm going too far though, what is the reason you want to do this?
