I have created static hosts for all of my clients (interim measure until I get DNS servers built and running) on an SG300-20. I defined all of these allocations using MAC addresses.
However, several of my clients (1 Windows 7 workstation, 2 FreeNAS / FreeBSD storage servers and 1 HP color Laserjet printer) are still being dynamically assigned other addresses based on client identifier.
In all four cases, the client identifier being used by the switch is the MAC address with a leading "01" octet attached.
For example, my workstation has a MAC address of 00:10:18:E3:64:2F, which is defined as a static host based on that MAC address. The switch is using a client identifier of 01:00:10:18:E3:64:2F.
I am sure that I need to be entering a client identifier in the static host instead of the MAC address. From the discussions that I have read on here, that should look something like 0100.1018.e364.2f, but the static hosts GUI will not accept that. It won't allow me to type periods at all, and it won't accept 0100:1018:e364:2f, so I am clearly not entering this correctly.
Any help on how to resolve this / how the GUI is expecting the client identifier to be formatted?
