Server 2003 - Add IPs to existing DHCP scope?

    Is there any way to add IP addresses to an existing scope? I've taken a
    new position and whoever setup the DHCP server here screwed things up by
    not including the entire IP range in the scope and then using exclusions
    to limit the IPs handed out. For example, they started the scope at
    192.168.100.100 instead of using 192.168.100.1. Needless to say, I'm
    short 99 addresses in my pool and I'm now down to just two available IP
    addresses after adding about 40 nodes to the network.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    That was too easy. No wonder I missed it. However, someone better notify
    MS of the typo on the support page you referenced above. There's a line
    that says, "This example yields a network of 254 hosts that occupy the
    range of addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 1921.68.1.254." Somehow, I don't
    think that second IP address is valid. ;-)

    Thanks for the pointer.
