assigning static ips

Hi ,

Can any one advice me on how to assign static ip's to servers in live environment?

Can these be the steps

1.first find out which vlan segment the server needs to be ?

2.Get one unused ip from that segment .

3.Assign that ip to the server

4.Configure the server in the same vlan segment .

Am i correct in my understanding ?

IF not please advice me on any other method or anything i missed out.

Please advice asap.

From what your provide that looks correct, one more would be to add the static IP to DNS so computers are able to resolve the computer correctly, you will probably need to update an existing IP listed there...

Users can run ipconfig /flushdns to update their local dns if they don't want to wait for the automatic update for the new servers IP....
One suggestin in addition to all is that, choose an IP Addess whcih is out of the DHCP scope or do not choose one with in the DHCP scope.

On a related note ,Does each vlan belong to a specific dhcp scope?

Am i right in my understanding.
VLans do not have to have DCHP enabled, if they do each one would be on a separate DHCP scope....  In a lot of configurations I have seem VLan's for servers & printers without a DHCP server while client computer have one..

I would also not recommend reserving a DHCP IP address in the scope for this Mac.... if the DHCP server goes down you always want your server to have an IP...
You would want to exclude the static IPs from the DHCP scopes though.
