DHCP WAN & W2K & Travelling Notebooks

By martianablex ·
I have a WAN setup with 2 different networks on each side.
LAN1 - W2K Server (AD main) with a firewall as a VPN endpoint. IP scheme 192.168.0.x /
LAN2 - W2K Server (AD same as first) with a firewall as a VPN endpoint. IP scheme 192.168.1.x /
Several users move between lans (offices) and I would like to move to DHCP without any trouble, and also re-map drives (to the local server)as well. Any suggestions ? I have made a batch file to remap drives, but I would like to put something into AD instead. Anyone have sample scripts or configs ?

Regarding the first point, depending on the hardware used you could set dhcp on your routers and each end point and obviously set each laptop/pc to pick up a dhcp ip address. Regarding the second point you may want to consider DFS (Distributed File System) or if your WAN link is good enough the do nothing as the users will map drives where ever the file system is located.
