Distributed DHCP Scopes - Distributed, L2

Hi all,

 

I have a question about the configuration of DHCP Scopes (type Distributed, L2). In the documentation for the field Netmask there is this explanation:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If Distributed, L2 is selected for type of DHCP scope, specify the subnet mask. The subnet mask and the network determine the size of subnet.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 


...but, where is the Network field?!

 

Thanks,

 

Massimo

Ok, this is quite misleading for me.

 

Thank you very much for the comprehensive response Victor!

Re: Distributed DHCP Scopes - Distributed, L2

Is there a reason you need L2 DIstributed?  Please consider L3 Distributed.  It is our preferred method unless clients need to be on the same broadcast domain.
