Fix the DHCP Scope Limitation in Sophos RED Configurations
We came upon a unique problem, had two Sophos RED appliances (RED 15 and RED 50) that were configured for two completely different companies. They both functioned just fine for a day or so, then went offline completely shutting down the site. RED services in the XG firewall crashed and wouldn't restart.
Turns out you cannot have more than one DHCP scope in a RED configuration. We had parsed the IP ranges to 2 and 3 scopes to account for static reservations that already existed. Having more than one DHCP scope basically crashed the RED services on the XG.
According to the Sophos support engineer, this has been a problem since v16 and nobody has bothered to fix it. So my idea is ... fix it!
