How do I create an additional static address in a LAN with both Static & DHCP? As far as I know we have correctly set up a range of dynamic IP's with a statics IP's at either end - routers and file servers. This has been working perfectly. What we need is to slice off one of the dynamic IP addresses and add it to the statics........we think have followed the proceedure and all does appear good and does hold onto it after re-boot - until the PC is powercycled (as part of the energy saving policy - in the evening). The it drops the lease. We run both eDirectory and active directory.........I wondered if one is not handing off to the other properly.
New to this so might be slow on the uptake.
