Need to Go from a Class B to a Class C network Windows Server 2003

Need to Go from a Class B to a Class C network Windows Server 2003


We have a customer who is presently running Windows Server 2003 and they are running out of internal IP addresses (7 left or 3%). I am not exactly sure how to get more addresses from the network. I assume that we need to go from a Class C to a Class B. The DC is Windows Server 2003 Standard. Can anyone give me a heads up on what might need to be done. We are going to get them up to Server 2012 in the near future but it seems that this needs to be done first as it is almost a critical stage. Maybe we can add a Class C network via Tagging ? Does anyone have any suggestions?
