DHCP superscope

    Hello,

    I am trying to figure out if my following scenario needs a superscope or
    not. I currently I have an office broken into 2 subnets. one subnet is the
    192.168.25.x subnet and the other is 192.168.26.x. The Server 2003 DHCP
    server is onthe 25.x subnet. Between the subnets is a Cisco router enabled as
    a DHCP relay passing traffic from the 26.x subnet to the DHCP server on the
    25 network . I have 2 scopes, one for the 25 and the 26 network. Is there an
    advantage to put both these scopes on a superscope, or is a superscope used
    for a different scenario? Any help would do. Thanks.

  2. No SuperScopes.

    Superscopes are for Multi-Nets. You don't have a Multi-Net. If you don't
    know what a Multi-Net is,...don't ask and feel blessed.

    You use a separate independent Scope for each subnet and set your LAN Router
    to forward the DHCP Queries from the opposite subnets to the DHCP Server.
    It really is just that simple.
