Cisco 3560 DHCP Reservation

Hi, I have a DHCP pool setup on a Cisco 3560 with a range of ip's excluded and the network, default router and dns server setup.
I want to reserve 5 of the excluded ip addresses to 5 devices using their MAC addresses.
I only seem to be able to set one reservation.

I have added the config as follows
conf t
ip dhcp pool staticaddresses
host <ip address> <subnet mask>
client-identifier 0148.39f1.0932.8c

1. is there any other way of getting to the <dhcp-config> prompt without typing conf t then ip dhcp pool staticaddresses as I have that listed twice now in my config?
2. When I add additional hosts and client-identifiers to the config either manually or copying and pasting them in one go, it only retains the last entry

kind regards, Rick

You can only have one host reservation per dhcp  pool - crazy, I know.

So, that being said, you need 5 pools (staticaddress1 through 5), each pool holds one host/mac/ip reservation.

Don't forget to exclude those addresses from your main scope (in global config).

ip dhcp excluded-address {lowest} {highest}
