  • DHCP Questions....

    I have a 2003 Server domain. Right now everything is static - for software reasons....
    Now the software does not require a static IP and I'd like to move everything to DHCP - because I'm sick of tracking all these IP's!

    The way things are setup now is that every IP from *.*.*.132 - .255 is in use. The block from *.*.*.1 - .131 is all available. We have about routers and switches that are scattered between .180 and .200.

    I'm just wondering what is the best way to setup DCHP? I'd like to get all the PC's in the .132-.255 range off of the static and into DHCP - and ideas?

    just create a new scope and assign the IP addresses that you want to be available for your workstations - can't use the .255 one, this is a broadcast IP.
    If you have a couple of IP's in this range, that are in use already, the you can exclude them for the DHCP scope as you need.

      If I setup a scope of .1 - .254 and exclude .132-.254 can I (in the future) open up .132 - .254 once I get those PC's moved to DHCP from static?

        you could use a startup script with the command netsh.

          Yes you can extend the scope in the future if needed. Just remove the excluded IP address range and use the netsh command ( as per moderator) to change them from static IP's to DHCP.
