DHCP Server on CATLYST 3550 & 3750

Hi.

Does anyone knows how to setup a CATALYST 3550 & 3750 as a DHCP Server?

I also need to save 10 IP addresses on the DHCP server for 10 different hosts (by their MAC addresses).

Hi Friend,

You can very well configure 3550 and 3750 as DHCP server

You have to enable command "service dhcp" first

This link will help you to cofnigure DHCP server and pool for your hosts

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122cgcr/fipr_c/ipcprt1/1cfdhcp.htm

Switch(config)# ip dhcp pool name

Switch(dhcp-config)# network network-number [mask | /prefix-length]

The link pasted above will give you a complete outline with commands how to cofigure DHCP server.

HTH, if yes please rate the post.

Hi Ankur.

Thanks for your help.

If I configure the DHCP pool it is good for only ONE static DHCP MAC-to-IP address, if I am trying to add another one in the same p[ool, it overwrite the first.

Sould I creat 10 different pools for 10 static DHCP ip addresses?

Re: DHCP Server on CATLYST 3550 & 3750

Hi Friend,

There is no limit on the number of manual bindings but you can only configure one manual binding per host pool.

To configure a manual binding, first create a host pool, then specify the IP address of the client and hardware address or client identifier. The hardware address is the MAC address. The client identifier, which is required for Microsoft clients (instead of hardware addresses), is formed by concatenating the media type and the MAC address of the client.

So you have to create creat 10 different pools for 10 static DHCP ip addresses.

HTH, if yes please rate the post.
