Easy flat network config...
Or it should be.
Pictures are good. Here's one I made earlier.
Shouldn't be able to go far wrong. No vlans. 2 DHCP servers dishing out slightly different ranges (got one range f.ex 192.168.5.0/22 split into 2, 192.168.5.1-192.168.7.254 and 192.168.8.1 to 192.168.10.254)
Need Site A workstations to pick up DHCP from Site A DHCP server and B stations to pick up from B. All stations need to talk to eachother.
I read somewhere ages ago that 2008 should just handle this anyway based on speed of the relevant DHCP servers. Doesn't work, the two are different buildings but connected via gig fibre. No routing so no extra hops.
Tried using an ip helper-address on the switches (procurve 5406zls), doesn't make a difference. Enabled routing on them (just ip routing enabled) with the default route on each set to 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.5.1 (gateway router address).
No difference, machines still pick up IP's from each others servers.
Do I need to go any more complicated with the routing setup? Even though I cleared DHCP leases from the servers would the clients still "remember" their last IP and connect to that as preferred?
