Re: [K12OSN] Dual NIC and DHCP

I've installed K12LTSP (CentOS5) for evaluation.  Server has dual NIC's.
eth0 has the default 192.168.0.254 scheme.  eth1 is static 192.168.1.25.

That should be just fine--provided, of course, that both interfaces are on different broadcast domains.

I have both NIC's going into the same switch/router/firewall, which gives
out it's own DHCP in the 192.168.1.x scheme.  My questions are:

OK, which is it--the same switch, the same router, or the same firewall? Which one?

When I plug in a PXE capable thin client appliance, will it know to get it's
information from the 192.168.0.x DHCP server or the 192.168.1.x DHCP server
(the switch/router/firewall)?  (yet to receive the appliance to test this)

That depends on how you've hooked things up (see previous question).

Should I just use one of the NIC's and manually assign the appliance's IP
information from the router via DHCP Reserved IP, then update the dhcpd.conf
file, using the 192.168.1.x scheme?


Well, if your K12LTSP server's eth1 is hooked up to your router, then you could certainly do a DHCP reservation. I tend to prefer static assignments, because it's just easier. Either way, you don't need to touch the K12LTSP server's dhcpd.conf, unless you made some custom tweaks to it to hand out 192.168.1.x addresses.
