Hi

I will shortly be installing a Big network (+-600 pcs), I'm planning to have all the servers on a central location, and some specific servers near the departaments they belongs to.

I would like to know which would be the ideal number of computer with in the same broadcast domain, so i can split the network in diferents broadcast domain.

Thanks

Well, there are as many answers to that question as there are stars in the universe! You need to define the exact nature of the network, as well as the amount of traffic you expect to make an intelligent response to this query. The one point I can agree with is having all the servers in a common location if possible, makes administration and debugging easier.

As John said there are many, many answers. Keeping your servers in a central location is a good idea. You may want to divide your network into VLANs by using switches capable of that. They are a little cheaper than routers.

I say make them all with the first 3 octets the same and the the first people on are the ones who win and the rest have to do manual labor for the day. :)
