    Add Second IP Address Windows 2003 for printers & switchs

    I have just watched a podcast on How to Add a Second IP Address in Windows 2003. I just wanted to ask you all a question regarding this.
    On our internal network we have 512 ip address available for lease. We are now currently near the limit. As my experience has grown over the last few years and so with it the size of our network I have realised that I need to change certain configurations to expand our network.

    I have used reserved IP address's for all our network printers and I also reserve the ip address's of the switches as well from our range. I have seen found out from reading that we do not need to use the range ips from our network for this. So after watching a blogcast has given me a good idea to solve it. If I give my Print Server a second IP of say 192.168.1.1 this will give me over 200 hundred ip's to use just for our printers (which I doubt will ever get up to) If I then give all my printers address's from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.255 will this work correctly. I presume I have no need at all to give my other servers a second IP in the same range. Also would I need to add the IP range to my reverse look up zones in DNS?


    I all is correct above could I do the same for my switches and just give my workstation a second ip on the same range that I will use for my switches.

    Many Thanks

    This should work fine, assuming your print server is the only thing that needs to talk to the printers (you might want to setup your tech PC with a second IP for printer management).

    If your switches are able, VLAN the new range off. It makes traffic management easier.
