Hi George,

The ASA only supports a maximum DHCP pool size of 256:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa84/configuration/guide/basic_dhcp.html#wp1125251

"If the number of hosts is unlimited, the maximum available DHCP pool is 256 addresses."

-Mike

Does that mean 256 for BOTH the default basic inside LAN and the available DMZ, or 256 for EACH??

thank you Mirober and Alex for your replies

i have two inside LAN sides (guest and admin), for admin it's static IP but the problem with guest that i need to enable DHCP server to give them more than 1000 IP addresses

i have read from the documentation that i cannot create a DHCP pool for more than 254 ip addresses even if i have unlimited lisence

thank you
