Windows DHCP server for VLAN clients

Unanswered Question

I have a 3750 switch that supports several VLANs. Right now the DHCP for the various VLANs is being done by the switch itself. I would like to move the DHCP service to a Windows server that does not support VLANs. How can I do this? I figure I need some type of "ip helper" command but how would I account for the different VLANs if the Windows server is not VLAN aware? Do I have to VLAN enable the server?

You would just need to do an ip helper-address on the 3750 for each of the vlans you want DHCP on. This would forward the dhcp request to the ip address of your MS DHCP server.

Then on the MS DHCP server just create the new scopes which match the network and subnet of the vlan.
