DHCP Superscopes?

By pbutler ·
I? am currently running a Class C network with DHCP and WINS, however, I? am very close to running out of IP addresses. Our company is currently in the process of adding an additional site, which will be connected via a router. This site will alsoinclude a BDC for authentication. My question is should I run a separate DHCP server at the remote site if I create a completely different scope or should I create a superscope on my current DHCP server. I?m looking for the best possible solution where I won?t run into major problems.

DHCP Superscopes?

This really depends on how you want to manage it. If you have a small link between the sites and short renewal times, or didn't want to add the dhcp broadcasts across your router, a dhcp server in the remote site would be appropriate. If the link isn't small or the renewal times aren't short throw a helper address(or equivelant) command on your router add another scope (or a super scope although it doesn't provide many benefits) to your dhcp server. This lets you manage it all from one box.
