Is there any way to assign an IP address to a computer connected a specific port on a level 3 Cisco switch? I would like to make a network map that can identify where computers are physically located in our building based on their IP address. If a computer moves locations, it gets a new IP address. That way an IP address is assigned to a physical location, and not a MAC address or computer.

Other ideas for being able to identify where computers are physically located would help, if my IP address idea is absurd.
