    Accepted Solution

    You can use a reservation.
    Locate the workstation's MAC address by running  ipconfig /all  the MAC address is next to "Physical address"
    Open the DHCP management console and expand the scope. Right click on reservation and choose new reservation. Enter a name, usually the computer name, the MAC address and the IP address. The client from now on through DHCP will always receive the same IP.
