Configuring fixed IP address

Basic question, please: if I need to set up a device with a fixed ip address within a subnet, do I set up the fixed ip address to be within the range of ip addresses allocated to the dhcp server, or on the same subnet but outside the range allocated to the dhcp server? Thanks.

You can do 2 things.  Normally you would assign an address in the same subnet but outside of the dhcp range.  IF you assign an address within the dhcp range then you need to define an exclusion on the scope.  I would do the first way though.
