How can I designate a static IP address (non-dhcp) for a network printer on my network? I want to give a static ip address that follows a range of a currently used static IP (so I want to use for my next printer installed.

I have a Windows 2003 server that handles my dns and IP range. How can I say this range is used for static and not to be a part of the DHCP pool?

Thank you, MJD

You need to add the range under the exclusions section on your DHCP server.
