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:
- Select the My IPAM tab. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
- 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.
- Under IPv4 Blocks, create an IPv4 block.
- In the IPv4 block, create an IPv4 network.
- In the IPv4 network create a DHCP range.
- On the IPv4 Network Details page, select the Addresses tab.
- Click an IP address or select the check box for an IP address inside the DHCP range.
- Click Action, then select Assign.
- From the Allocation Type drop-down menu, select DHCP Reserved.
- In the MAC Address field, enter the MAC Address of the client.
- In the Host Name field (optional), type the DNS name of the client or select the Same As Zone check box.
- In the IP Address Name field, enter a descriptive name for the reservation (optional).
Note: You can edit the IP address name and the MAC address of a DHCP reserved address, and you can modify device settings.
