In second case i have another router with DHCP unable in another server working fine,
Help I need from you guys is if either I am doing some thing wrong or do i have to add some thign extra in server to get internet working ,
I would really appricate if you can help
You need to assign your server a static address. If the router is 192.168.1.1 you can give the server 192.168.1.2 (if no other device is using this address) with the subnet usually being 255.255.255.0 and gateway being 192.168.1.1. Also install active directory and DNS. In your network card configuration the DNS should be 192.168.1.2 which is the server itself. Also on the DNS forwarding tab, you can put your ISP DNS servers.
Next configure your DHCP with the ip range you want…Say 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.100. So anything with 192.168.1.9 back would be static and be excluded in your DHCP scope. Go to DHCP scope options and check that the Gateway is configured with 192.168.1.1, DNS address is 192.168.1.2 and with the correct domain name.
Actually my ip pool i defined is 10.10.0.3 is for the default gateway,
DHCP i defined 10.10.0.51 to 10.10.0.200
Do i have to have two network card as my serverhad 4 netowrk card ,
can you please assint me in configuring both network card what should I do
I had one fiber optical router provide by ISP though which one internet connection is going to my old router which IP i define as 10.10.1.3 and running fron that router DHCP unable and working fine
Recently i purchased another router and defiend an ip of 10.10.0.3 and turn off DHCP in router and install Active Directory , DHCP and DNS in the server with the IP for DHCP ranger ffrom 10.10.0.51 to 10.10.0.200 and my server static IP 10.10.0.50 and prefered DNS with my server ip it self 10.10.0.50 and alternate DNS with the gateway 10.10.0.3
I would use only one network card. Why do you need 2 routers? Are both routers on the same subnet? Also, just leave the alternate DNS blank. Do an ipconfig/all and post the results. Can you describe exactly how you connected these devices?
