Installing DHCP Server in Windows 2000

Before installing DHCP, you should have already designed the DHCP strategy, as discussed in Chapter 4. During this installation, I will be referring to the DHCP design discussed in that chapter.

The first DHCP server I will install is in the Corp HQ site, DHCP-HQ1. First I need to determine the range of IP addresses to be used to create the scopes. These are the scopes that this DHCP server will serve to DHCP clients. Remember that we will split the scopes in this site 50/50 with the second DHCP server. Table 5.2 lists the scopes to be created.

Table 5-2. DHCP Scopes for DHCP-HQ1

Scope

Address Range

168.3.4.0

168.3.4.1 through 168.3.5.255

168.3.8.0

168.3.8.1 through 168.3.9.255

168.3.12.0

168.3.12.1 through 168.3.13.255

168.3.16.0

168.3.16.1 through 168.3.17.255

168.3.20.0

168.3.20.1 through 168.3.21.255

168.3.24.0

168.3.24.1 through 168.3.25.255

168.3.28.0

168.3.28.1 through 168.3.28.255

168.3.32.0

168.3.32.1 through 168.3.33.255

168.3.36.0

168.3.36.1 through 168.3.37.255

168.3.40.0

168.3.40.1 through 168.3.41.255

Next, I need to assign a static IP address to DHCP-HQ1. I am going to assign an IP address from the first scope, 168.3.4.10. I need to remember to exclude this IP address when I am creating the scopes later.

OK, I have the scopes planned out and I have a static IP address for the server. Let’s get started on the install.

Installing DHCP Server can be accomplished in one of two ways:

  • During the initial install ...
