just to add something different to this mess.

I never really run my dhcp servers with multiple legs into different networks.

I usually just setup dhcp relays to the dhcp servers from the routers connecting to the different network segments (vlans).

Matter of fact its quite normal for me to have the dhcp servers in separate vlans where there is not a single client.

Makes for a much cleaner and simpler setup than the mess of having to put the server into each and every segment / vlan.
