DHCP troubles

By k4k ·
i have configured DHCP on Win 2000 for 2 of my remote subnets using relay agent & DHCP Superscopes. its working fine with both remote subnets. i have reserved an IP address for laptop Users on both subnets using the LAPTOPS's MAC address. now when a users moves FROM REMOTE SUBNET A to REMOTE SUBNET B . he still gets the IP address of REMOTE SUBNET A which was binded to his laptop's MAC Address. he should actually be getting the IP adderss from REMOTE SUBNET B when he is there in REMOTE SUBNET B. i have released & renewed IP assignment on his LAPTOP. but he is still getting his reserved IP address of REMOTE SUBNET A. how do i resolve this issue?

You can set a classid for the laptop(s). Use this classid to use specific addresses from each scope only for this classid. If you use a reservation for a specific MAC, then the MAC will always get the same address, whether or not it is correct forthe subnet. I would also use two scopes (one for each subnet) and let the router tell the DHCP server whick subnet the request is being made from via DHCP relay. I personally don't like to use superscopes, but rather separate scopes for each subnet.
