Dear Experts:

We are having ubuntu dhcp server, eventhough network printer is assigned with the manual ip address and still the dhcp releases the same ip address to some toher host and ip conflict happens manay time.

could not remove the ip address from the specified range and reserve for the reason the assigned ip address is inbetween the range
subnet netmask {

host reservations # is it possible to reserve ip of to mac as this ip is already in the above range.

below doubts and suggestion requested:
1.Is it possible to reserve the ip with hardware mac within the above range or it should be out of the above range.

2. how do i reserve the ip which is in the above range please suggest.

    Accepted Solution

    1) MAC bindings should be outside the subnet configuration

    2) just define 2 ranges leaving out a "hole"

           subnet netmask
