Since you've only deployed one server that actually does stuff, serving
sessions to LTSP clients, I don't think you need to worry about using
different scopes and more DHCP servers.
Simply adjust your subnet mask so you have enough addresses for
everything that needs one and let the K12LTSP server act as the only
DHCP server. Only network boot enabled clients will start as LTSP
clients, the rest will just get an Ip-address and go about their normal
The reason I have four DHCP servers on my setup is, that I want to
spread the load on the four K12LTSP servers, without having to get into
elaborate setup of load balancing (if at all possible) and maintain the
ability to 'take out' a server or two for maintenance, without having to
reconfigure an awful lot.
hope this helps
