I'm very new to Cisco, so bear with me. I am setting up an 1812 and I'm having trouble using DHCP to distribute static addresses. I have had quite a bit of experience doing this with other routers and thought I had it right. Using SDM, I defined the DHCP pool and created the DHCP bindings but the servers didn't pick up thise addresses and I had to configure one each separately. I would like to have DHCP do the job since it would also update the DNS settings when necessary.
I tried allocating the entire subnet to DHCP and that didn't work. Then I allocated a small block to DHCP with the bindings outside the block, this is the way I would normally configure static DHCP. Neither way worked, what am I missing?
