I have 3 servers running NW 6.5 SP3 providing DHCP, DNS and DDNS. Things are working more or less as advertised but I have some questions that the documentation can't seem to answer.

The big one is: when are you supposed to use subnet pools?

I understand the difference between subnets and subnet address ranges I just can't quite sort out what the subnet pools do. I'm currently handing out addresses to 6 different subnets but I expect to be expanding that to more than 20 in the near future. I have a separate subnet pool created and assigned to each subnet. This will get a lot more cumbersome as I scale things up so are subnet pools necessary?

thanks Greg Dufault
