DHCP Address Reservation

I was wondering whether this config would work or not. I have a printer that needs to be configured with a static IP address and it can't be done on the printer itself but instead via DHCP address reservation. This is what I configured on my router which acts as a DHCP server for a small office.

ip dhcp pool Auckland-Main

import all

network 10.210.3.0 255.255.255.128

domain-name mediamonitors.com.au

dns-server 10.209.3.7 10.95.3.10

default-router 10.210.3.1

ip dhcp pool Auckland-Static

import all

host 10.210.3.32 /25

client-identifier xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

client-name ABCD

What happpen is when the printer is turned on, it will pickup a DHCP address from the Auckland-Main pool but when I do "show ip dhcp bind", the router actually shows two IP addresses. One is from the Auckland-Main and the other is from Auckland-Static.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: DHCP Address Reservation

Vincent..

instead of leaving it to DHCP (which will change your printers IP sometimes), u can create static binding on the dhcp server (router) to make the IP address of the printer constant at all times.. i think this is the only way to go about this, unless u can manually configure the static IP....

use this URL for reference:
