Exclusions versus reservations on static IPs
Posted on 2007-08-11
I am using SBS 2003 Standard Edition R2. I have a range of IP addresses for the server to assigned via DHCP for the client machines. I have static IPs for the networked priters and fax machines as well as for the server, router, and switch.
Currently, those that required static IP addresses have been excluded from DHCP assigned IPs via exclusions. It seems like someone told me once that it is better to use reservations for this. I had no trouble setting that up for the server as I know its MAC address. I don't, however, know MAC addressed for switches, routers and printers.
Should I just use the exclusions?
