Extending Network

By GJ2008 ·
I will be installing a new Windows 2000 server on a separate domain to the existing one on the network and am not sure how the IP address range will work. Our existing IP range is 1.0.0.1 - 1.0.0.250, the majority of which is being used. Will I needto extend the range for the new server and the computers connecting to it? If so, how do I go about this. Please could you point me in the right direction. Many thanks in advance.

Subnet your network, to get more subnets and more hosts.

It depends on whether you will be migrating all the existing workstations and servers to the new domain, or will be adding a totally new group of workstations and servers to the new domain. If you're migrating the existing workstations and servers,simply give the new server a static IP address within the same range. TCP/IP doesn't care what domain you're in, only what IP address range. If you're adding a completely new set of workstations and servers, then you need to create a new subnet - i.e., 1.0.1.1 through 1.0.1.254. Make sure the subnet mask is appropriate - i.e., 255.255.255.0 and that you have a router in place so that the two subnets can communicate if required. You should read up a bit on TCP/IP before attempting this if youhave no knowledge of the subject. Hope this helps!
