DHCP Server Superscope in Win2003 Server

    Just built a Win2003 server, added DHCP service and built a superscope with 2
    scopes in it. First scope has 'free' IPs to hand out and I put my
    reservations in the second scope. Scope 1: 106:10-62 Scope 2:106.66-125
    When I start up a computer that should get a reservation, it grabs an open IP
    from the first scope. The second scope does not hand out any IPs. I tried
    putting in an exclusion range on the first scope so there would be no IPs
    available. Then the computer that is supposed to get a reservation just sits
    there and will not get any IP. What must I do to get the second scope
    working? The first scope works great! There is no domain controller so it
    is not an 'authorized' DHCP server but it is activated with no error

    Superscopes are used only when you want to use two or more different IP
    address ranges on one physical subnet. Is that what you have?

    Scope 1: 106:10-62 Scope 2:106.66-125

    Yes, I believe so. In fact I tried to make one large scope with IPs from
    10-125 and the DHCP wizard would not let me do it, saying there were too many
    IPs and broke it into two scopes automatically! I did not originally plan to
    have two scopes. I had a similar problem when I first built the same scopes
    in a Win2000 server but don't remember how I resolved it. It's been a few
