Can the same server be used for both the Normal and the Quarantine DHCP Server with the Symantec Enforcer in Symantec Enterprise Protection (SEP) 5.x?
Yes. You can use the same server for both the normal DHCP server and the quarantine DHCP server. However, it is recommended that you use two different servers. If you want to use one DHCP server as both the normal and quarantine DHCP server, you can do that but you need to configure it a different way. The configuration you use depends on different factors in your environment.
Consider the following:
- Microsoft DHCP servers do not support multiple subnets. If you are using Microsoft DHCP servers, you may need to have two DHCP servers.
- If you want to use only one Microsoft DHCP server, all your machines will have to use the same IP address subnet. You can define a special SYGATE_ENF class to alter the route.
- If you are in an environment that uses two different subnets, you need to make sure that your routers will allow the ability to manage two subnets on a single router interface. For example, Cisco routers have a feature called IP secondary. Check your router documentation for whether or not this is supported.
Refer to the "Enforcer Installation and Administration Guide" in the PDF documentation for details.
