How to create a DHCP reserved address.

If you create a DHCP reserved address in an Address Manager IPv4 network without creating a DHCP range, an address pool is created on Windows to accommodate the reservation. If the reservation is a single IP address, then the corresponding address pool will be a single address as well. If you create more than one reserved address, the address pool is built using the two reservations as the start and end points.

To create a DHCP reserved address:

  1. Select the My IPAM tab. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Click the IP Space tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so click the IP Space tab again to ensure you are working with the Configuration information page.
  3. Under IPv4 Blocks, create an IPv4 block.
  4. In the IPv4 block, create an IPv4 network.
  5. In the IPv4 network create a DHCP range.
  6. On the IPv4 Network Details page, select the Addresses tab.
  7. Click an IP address or select the check box for an IP address inside the DHCP range.
  8. Click Action, then select Assign.
  9. From the Allocation Type drop-down menu, select DHCP Reserved.
  10. In the MAC Address field, enter the MAC Address of the client.
  11. In the Host Name field (optional), type the DNS name of the client or select the Same As Zone check box.
  12. In the IP Address Name field, enter a descriptive name for the reservation (optional).
  13. Click Add.
    Note: You can edit the IP address name and the MAC address of a DHCP reserved address, and you can modify device settings.
