    Dhcp


    This is regarding a major issue in the org that im working. The org has two dhcp servers of which one is a virtual one in citrix. now both give ips through dhcp. the org is facing lot of disconnection problems related to n/w as the n/w keeps on getting disconnected for the users. but when dhcps were disabled the n/w is working fine. is it due to the dhcp that the problem has arisen? can dhcp cause such a problem? The dhcp scope is divided among the 2 servers. is the problem due to this kind of architecture?

    regards,

    Just guessing, I haven't set up a dhcp server for years, but as far as I know you should only have one dhcp server on a subnet. Remember dhcp communication between the workstation and the server takes place before your workstation has an IP address. You may want to research more on multiple dhcp servers on a network.

    I have a pc using 3 nic cards, eth0 for connects on internet gateway and other two (eth1 and eth2) for provide DHCP for two subnets. My issue is: I want both subnets on same subnet (192.168.1.0) is it possible? My pc is running centOS linux.

    Your statement "I want both subnets on the same subnet" doesn't make any sense. Are you saying you'd like to combine both of them into one? You'll need to come with a few more details of what it is you have and what you are trying to do.

    Sorry, I didn't make myself clear. My network topology is described as image bellow:



    And I want to make them as unique network like 192.168.2.0 for all network elements, except first router, of course.
