Configuring a DHCP pool on a cisco 2851

I created a sub interface on my cisco 2851 router with the following details:

GigabitEthernet0/1.6 is up, line protocol is up
  Hardware is MV96340 Ethernet, address is 001b.54b7.e181 (bia 001b.54b7.e181)
  Description: Test
  Internet address is 10.50.70.1/24
  MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit/sec, DLY 10 usec,
     reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255
  Encapsulation 802.1Q Virtual LAN, Vlan ID  70.
  ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00
  Last clearing of "show interface" counters never

What I would like to do now is create a DHCP Pool for this network and am looking for a little guidance. Any help would be appreciated.

Below is what I have configured.  Do I need

ip dhcp pool Test
   network 10.50.70.0 255.255.255.0
   dns-server 199.247.157.38
   default-router 10.50.70.1
   lease 3

What is the purpose of the ip dhcp excluded-address?  Is this for a range that I mat want to statically assign Ip address for devices?

PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
Yes, ip dhcp excluded-address is for static range - addresses that will not be in pool. IP adress of router, servers, etc.
If you are not directly attached to the router that assigns IP addresses, you may need ip helper-address x.x.x.x

How would I assign this DHCP pool to VLAN 70?

Eye-catchers on the conference table

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.

 
PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
Create subinterface for vlan 70 on router for network 10.50.70.0

R1# configure terminal
R1(config-subif)# interface gigabitethernet0/1.70
R1(config-subif)# encapsulation dot1q 70
R1(config-subif)# ip address 10.50.70.1

ip dhcp pool Test
   network 10.50.70.0 255.255.255.0
   dns-server 199.247.157.38
   default-router 10.50.70.1

Since host with default gateway 10.50.70.1 asks for IP address router knows ip range of addresses.

On switch you need to create trunk port with dot1q encapsulation to router, and enable VLAN 70 on trunk

So I actually had the following:

R1# configure terminal
R1(config-subif)# interface gigabitethernet0/1.6
R1(config-subif)# encapsulation dot1q 70
R1(config-subif)# ip address 10.50.7.1

do I need to change it to:

R1# configure terminal
R1(config-subif)# interface gigabitethernet0/1.70
R1(config-subif)# encapsulation dot1q 70
R1(config-subif)# ip address 10.50.7.1

I was just keeping with this companies existing subinterfaces for example 1.5 is for Vlan 50, 1.4 for 40 etc..

No you don't need to change, but it is a good practice it is much easier for debugging.
when subnet is
for VLAN 70
0/1.70
encapsulation dot1q 70
ip address 10.0.70.1

for VLAN 50
0/1.50
encapsulation dot1q 50
ip address 10.0.50.1

any VLAN and IP address numbers are good...
but keep it simple - it much more easier to track VLAN-s for debugging if logic is always same
