WDS Deployment spanning multiple subnets

less than 1 minute read

This turned out to be simpler than I had first imagined. Reading the Microsoft documentation looked like we had to make changes to the DHCP, however this was not the case.

To make it clearer, our current environment looks like this:

  1. DHCP is a Linux CentOS Server
  2. WDS and DHCP servers are on the same subnet
  3. Client machines are on various subnets
  4. Cisco core switch and router stack

For our setup, we only needed to make sure the Cisco ip helper-address was set to point to the IP address of BOTH the DHCP and WDS. Once this was done, everything went as intended.
