    I have a dhcp server sitting on server03, currently the scope is 192.168.0.x.
    I want to be able to segregate my network by breaking it up into 192.168.1.x
    and 192.168.2.x for different departments. how, if possible, could I set up
    scopes on my dhcp to assign address to the other subnets

  2. On the DHCP server you just set up the scopes as normal. The scopes do not
    have any relationship to the subnet of the DHCP server itself.
    Then on the router or switch you need to set up an IP Forwarder address,
    which forwards DHCP requests from one subnet to a DHCP server. The DHCP
    server knows which subnet the request came from, and responds with an
    address in that subnet.

    Anthony, thanks for the reply. Do you have a suggestion for a switch that
    handles IP forwarders?
