Couple of problems

Microsoft Windows server 2003 w/sp1 - 1...

Specs: Windows Server 2003
Hi all,

I have been interested in getting to networking and thus I am currently experimenting setting up a simple network with windows server 2003 to set up a server-client environment.

I have set myself give phases I want to accomplish in regards to the testing for the simple network I am doing.

The phases are:
Phase 1 – Domain Installation;
Phase 2 – Domain User Configuration;
Phase 3 – Disk Setup;
Phase 4 – GPO Deployment;
Phase 5 – Managing Access to Network Resources.

Now I am currently on Phase 1 itself and I am having problem with the DHCP setup.

I have planned an IP addressing scheme already which is:
Servers 192.168.20.1 192.168.20.10
Printers 192.168.20.25 192.168.20.35
Clients 192.168.20.50 192.168.20.200
Router 192.168.20.254
IP Address exclusion - 192.168.20.10-20

Now the problem is that when I installed the DHCP service and created a scope, I setup the IP addressing range as 192.168.20.1-254 and now I can't seem to add any of the ip address ranges for the devices listed in my ip addressing plan (listed above). My question is how can I achieve what my plan has within DHCP in server 2003 (For example: server within 192.168.20.1-10, clients within 192.168.20.50-200 and so forth)?

PS. The DNS server is setup and the router is within the scope, so no problem there.

Thanks,
Max

set the dhcp from .50 to .200, or how many addresses you need
for client workstations, everything else static. if any of the
workstations need to be controlled from outside (remote
desktop), also give them static

setup the IP addressing range as 192.168.20.1-254 and now I can't seem to add any of the ip address ranges for the devices listed in my ip addressing plan

If by this statement you mean you setup the DHCP Scope as being:
192.168.20.1 - 192.168.20.254
then that is your problem.

The Scope should only encompass the IP's you wish to be given automatically to DHCP clients.

All other IP's should not be in the scope. According to what you said above, you should have:

DHCP Scope = 192.168.20.50 to 192.168.20.200

Since your other IP's are all going to be statically applied to clients, there's nothing you need to configure for them in DHCP.

At the point, where you configure the scope for the DHCP server, simply rightclick in the address pool window. Create a new reserved range for your servers, printers a.s.o.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

Thanks for all the replies, guys!

I have configured the scope for clients only and will statically assign all other IPs.

Though, I might re-post in this thread if I encounter more problems along the way.

Hey guys,

I just want to confirm that I add the ip addresses for the servers/other network devices in the IP settings section of the Advanced TCP/IP config?

Cheers

Having problem joining XP to the domain.

I will give you my ipconfig details and perhaps from there you might be able to tell me what I am doing wrong.

ipconfig details for LAN in Windows Server:

IP Address: 192.168.25.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.25.254
DHCP enabled: No
DNS server: 127.0.0.1

ipconfig details for LAN in XP:

IP Address: 192.168.25.4
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.25.254
DHCP enabled: No
DNS server: 192.168.25.1

So yeh, I have tried using the two methods for domain join I know (creating a computer object in AD and then trying to change the xp computer to join the domain and setting up the xp computer's dns server to the IP address of server which is 192.168.25.1 and then trying to change the xp computer to join the domain ) and the errors I keep getting are:
1. The DNS servers used by this computer for name resolution are not responding. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses: 192.168.25.1. Verify that this computer is connected to the network, that these are the correct DNS server IP addresses, and that at least one of the DNS servers is running.

If I choose the automatically obtain IP address and/or DNS server option in XP, it comes up with:
1. A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable host.
or
2. No DNS servers configured on the local system.

Any idea to what I am doing wrong?

Thanks.
