right in one of my schools i have a single server running both admin and curriculum networks (yes i know but its what i inherited and isnt likely to change anytime soon unless it croaks) currently it has 2 nics one for admin and one for curriculum. The curriculum has dhcp running on it but at the moment admin dosent i have to force feed an address in. Is it possible to set up a 2nd dhcp scope with appropriate addresses in and bind it to the admin nic if so how? I have set up the scope i just cant see how i would make it active on which card.
i cant merge the networks into one subnet as lea needs certain programs to run from an admin ip address and as they only allocate 255 of them it isnt enough to enable me to just have one network which would make more sense as as far as i can see other than stopping an admin pc talking directly to a curriculum pc (and as all data should be on the server so what) there is no real reason to separate when they all go to the same place
think i might want to try that on a vm/test rig rather than a live server then ll though atm im not 100% sure but server seems to be giving ou same dhcp on both but it could just be where the sockets wired to and diddnt have time to check
