Scope

By deangk ·
I want to setup 2 windows 2000 servers.Do I need to create a scope on the first server and assign an IP address before getting the 2nd server online.
I was going to use 192.168.1.1 thru 192.168.1.254
exclude 192.168.1.1 thru 192.168.1.10 for servers
192.168.1.10 first Server
192.168.1.11 2nd Server
subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.1.2

Both Servers need to have STatic IP's.

User 192.168.0.11/24 to 192.168.0.254/24 for clients and keep servers static under .10/24

OK, actually unless the server is a Domain controller or another enterprise service provider(e-mail sql etc) there is no requirement for the IP to be statically assigned.

As for the DHCP range. Well personally I just don't have the server range in the DHCP scope. E.g if you're going to use 192.168.1.1-10 for servers, just set the scope to 11-254.

another side note is that I tend to break out by subnet like this

1-10 network equipment
11-20 Domain Controllers (even if you don't use all IP's)
21-30 E-mail
31-40 MISC servers
41-100 reserved for other needs
101-254 DHCP

You of course can tweek the actual ranges as needed but I've been in situations where I need a IP and can't get a sequential or grouped one. Plus this way you'll always know that a specific service type will be in a specific IP range.
