Cisco dhcp reservations
Posted on 2011-05-02
I'm configuring a cisco 1700 series router to provide DHCP and would like it to reserve some IPs for a couple of devices so that when they request an IP they get one I set for them.
I found the example below showing how to setup a pool for the individual device, what I want to know is how this will work with the main pool? does it depend on which pool assigns it first, or does this pool exclude it from the previous pool? The only way to exclude addresses I know is a global command, not specific to the IP pool.
Named Mars The MAC address of the client is 02c7.f800.0422 and the IP address of the client is 172.16.2.254.
ip dhcp pool Mars
