My organization is going to run out of local network IP addresses within the next few months. We are expanding to get a ton of new people and we are switching over to Lync IP phones.
Crunching through the numbers, we have about 253 addresses on the network and we are going to have over 300 IP devices. I'm not sure what I should look into to fix this problem.
I'm the server administrator, but I don't have a background in networking. I tried setting my computer from
192.168.2.XXX, but it complained about a subnet issue. I left all the other settings the same as they were; subnet, DNS, gateway.
I just need to bring this up to my manager, with a couple ideas on how to fix this. Then maybe we can consult outside help if it will be to over my head. But in the meantimes I just need some ideas.
