DHCP IP address reservation

Unanswered Question
Jan 30th, 2008

I have a dhcp pool for - 254 on a cisco 3750 switch.

I want to reserve some specific IP address for some specific machines / persons. So that those machines always get the same IP and that IP doesnt get assigned to another machine.I want to give specific IPs to managers etc.

I have this problem too.

You will need to configure separate DHCP pool per client

ip dhcp pool PC1


client-identifier xxxx.xxxx.xxxx PC1 MAC address

default-router x.x.x.x

ip dhcp pool PC2


client-identifier xxxx.xxxx.xxxx PC2 MAC address

default-router x.x.x.x

you need to specify the MAC address of each host and the associated IP within each pool...

For rest of users you can crate one pool with network specified


Hope that helps rate if it does
