WINDOWS DHCP SCOPE QUESTION

We have a Scope 10.0.70.1 - 10.0.79.254   on a Windows 2008 R2 DHCP

Should we be putting addresses such as 10.0.70.255, 10.0.71.0 in reserve to avoid using any of the .0 and .255 addresses?

No, if your scope is .1-.254, those addresses are out of scope and thus won't be auto assigned.

And windows won't allow anyone to statically assign those addresses.

Our range is is x.x.70.x  to x.x.79.x so those .0 and .255 are in the mix.
