Restrict DHCP on a Switch Port

Posted on 2011-05-04
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We have a Windows 2008 R2 server acting as a DHCP server.  There are a few propitary devices that do not play well with DHCP.

Is there a way I can restrict DHCP on certain switchports?  

We have Cisco Layer 2 switches.
