Is there any way to prevent a specific computer from obtaining a DCHP address from my DHCP server? I need a solution for both NT 4.0 server as well as 2003 server. I want to do this from the server side rather than the client side (very important). Shouldn't I be able to restict access from that specific MAC address? If so what steps need to be taken to achieve this? Also I want to do this without creating a new scope or superscope if possible.

Prevent it? No; What you can do, however, is assign a specific IP, or a reservation, for the client. The only real way to prevent it from getting the DHCP assignement is to set the client to static IP.

You can make a reservetions for all IP-s in the scope of the DHCP server

unfortunately you're reading correctly - you can't do it unless you reserve every address in your scope. ouch.

there are other DHCP servers that will do this - I remember sitting through a CheckPoint seminar where they talked about secure DHCP and being able to check the client MAC....but MS doesn't do this (it's not part of the DHCP/BOOTP RFC)
