I'd like my Windows 2012 DHCP server to give ShoreTel phones IP addresses from one scope, and everything else IP addresses from another scope.

For example, I'd like to give phones IPs from, and everything else IPs from I want to do this so I can route traffic for phones differently than other traffic.

I know that I can change individual options for devices from a specific vendor (give them different DNS servers, etc.), but I don't know if I can draw addresses from completely different scopes. Is that possible?

I believe this is possible according to this article. You can set allow/deny filters for the scopes within DHCP. The article is for 2008R2, but I don't see why it wouldn't also be available in 2012.
