Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Say you have two ethernet card on two different subnets and you are running a DHCP server. You can make a scope that applied to each subnet (because the scope IP address range matches that of the IP configuration on the ethernet adapter). The DHCP server will hand out IP addresses from that scope to clients on that ethernet adapter.

I hope that helps!

    If you plan on installing an additional network adapter, or have already, into the DHCP server, I think this should work but it isn't required. You can setup DHCP scopes for different network subnets; however, DHCP is not a routable protocol so a DHCP relay agent is needed in this case.

    Both these guys are correct. I've setup a network of around 10 subnets on one DHCP server before with only one physical NIC in the machine and the correct addresses always got handed out on the right subnet thanks to the ip helper commands on our cisco switches (and dhcp relays, if we had needed them)
