    Directing DHCP clients to specific server

    If you have more than one DHCP servers what's the best way of ensuring certain clients to pick up specific reservations?

    How can I determine which server service which clients?

    as far as I know, you can't restrict which server hands out addresses to which client.

    What you can do is put the same reservations in each server. That's a faff if you do it through the GUI but it's easy to do at the command line using netsh. There's some stuff here http://blogs.msdn.com/anto_rocks/arc...28/381539.aspx about how to do it or I can probably dig out the script which I've used to do it before.

    Maybe you can do something with ipconfig /setclassid . To get them to differentiate.
