Hi

How to make my Windows 10 clients get different IPs from different scopes.

Please, how to do it on Hyper-V Lab.

I built Lab where all VMs have different static IPs, some of them are in the same range and some others are in a different range, the Lab is built on Hyper-V, and I created one internal switch for the entire environment, and the VMs as follows:

  • DC - 192.168.10.1
  • DHCP Server - 192.168.10.4
  • Additional Server (Not DC) - 192.168.20.1
  • File Server - 192.168.30.1
  • RODC - 192.168.40.1
  • Router - have 5 NIC cards for the VMs (all Default gateway)
  • 4 Windows 10 clients.

Therefore, the idea is how to make the Windows 10 clients have IPs from a different scope.

Let us say that I want Client1 and Client2 to get IP from Scope-A with a range from 192.168.10.2 - 192.168.10.50.

In addition, Client3 and Client4 get IP from Scope-B with a range from 10.10.10.1 - 10.10.10.50

The DHCP configuration is correct (Scope, server options), however, all 4 Clients got IPs from Scope-A.

How do I make 2 Clients get IPs from Scope-B?

Kind regards

    Hi

    For Client 3/4 to get an IP Address in the 10.10.10.1-50 range, you would need to create an additional Internal Switch for that network and assign those devices to that network. Then do either of the following:

    • Create a DHCP Server for that network and host the DHCP Scope for that range of addresses
    • Host the DHCP Scope on the 192.168.10.4 DHCP Server and set up relays from the 10.10.10.x network so that clients on that network can communicate with the DHCP Server and get an IP from the scope.

    You could use the Routing and Remote Access role on a server in the Lab environment to achieve this.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks

    Thank you, Michael

    I did the second option and it worked:

    Host the DHCP Scope on the 192.168.10.4 DHCP Server and set up relays from the 10.10.10.x network so that clients on that network can communicate with the DHCP Server and get an IP from the scope.

    it worked, and now the clients got IPs from the scopes according to the networks that they are connected to.

    but there is an issue, although the Client got an IP address I am not able to join it to the domain(unable to ping DNS), the DC is working fine, and all the other subnets that are on the same internal switch of the DC can join the domain and ping, but the new internal switch is not able to join domain and ping DNS.

    Vswitch

    in our case, we have 2 internal switches

    How to connect both internal switches in Routing and Remote Access?

    Vswitch

    kind regards
