14.6. Creating a Superscope
You want to create a superscope, which allows you to manage multiple scopes on the same physical network.
Using a graphical user interface
Open the DHCP snap-in.
In the left pane, right-click on DHCP and select Add Server.
Type the name of the DHCP Server you want to target and click OK.
Right-click the server in the left pane and select New Superscope. This option will display only if there are scopes configured that have not been added to a superscope yet.
Click Next to begin the New Superscope Wizard.
Enter a name for the superscope and click Next.
Select the scopes to add to the superscope and click Next.
Using a command-line interface
The following command creates a superscope named "Building 5" and adds the scope identified by subnet 192.168.1.0 to it:
> netsh dhcp server scope 192.168.1.0 set superscope "Building 5" 1
The following command displays all the superscopes on a server:
> netsh dhcp server show superscope
The following command deletes the superscope named "Building 5":
> netsh dhcp server delete superscope "Building 5"
See the Introduction for more information on how to run the netsh command from within a script.
Superscopes allow you to manage a collection of scopes as one entity. You can activate or deactivate all the scopes in a superscope at one time and view the combined lease statistics for all scopes in the superscope.
Superscopes are most often used when you need to create a secondary subnet ...
