DHCP - TokenRing & Ether. on one server

By orrrw ·
I have a W2K network that is currently Token Ring. We want to slowly move to Ethernet. We have two different subnets assigned to our office, one for each topology. The W2K server currently is providing DHCP services for the token ring machines in the office.

Can I just add a second scope to the DHCP services for the Ethernet side? Will I need to add/tweak it a bit so that the Ethernet machines grab a valid Ethernet IP and the TRs add a valid TR IP?

Yes, just add another scope (subnet range) for the ethernet subnet. The DHCP request will include the subnet of origin so the server will supply an appropriate address. Just be sure your routers forward DHCP requests to the server.
You don't mention a bridge in your network. I wonder if your DHCP server is multihomed - both token ring and ethernet NICs. That would be fine, but you would not want the browser service running on a multihomed computer.
