    Altering Scope

    Some time ago one of the servers at one of my sites failed (as predicted!) and I had to shuffle its functions to the other server. In my haste (and never having done it before) I don't think DNS was properly configured. Things are (mainly) working, but I'd like to change a few things, though it appears you can only create a new scope, not alter an existing one.

    Can someone confirm that it's OK to do the following (or warn me off it!)?

    I was planning on deactivating the current scope (rather than delete it, just in case my plan fails). Create a new scope (same IP range, but a few other tweaks) and activate it. Test new scope and if OK leave running (delete old scope only after a couple of weeks - just in case there are any problems my testing doesn't pick up) or delete and reactivate old scope if no joy.

    Not what I said in my first (no longer editable) post, sorry!

    It's the DHCP scope. (There are, I suspect, DNS problems but that's another story). Anyway, want to change the subnet mask and the IP address listed at the top of the scope isn't right.
