    Question DHCP server problem

    Hi there,

    I have a query related to the ISC's DHCP server (one provided as a standard package with Redhat distributions)

    1> Whenever I am reserving any ip for a particular machine on the dhcp using "host" definition in /etc/dhcpd.conf file, do I still require to ommit that ip from the DHCP range of the subnet(specified by "range" definiteion)??

    I am using something like this :
    host DEVICE {hardware ethernet 08:00:06:2B:AE:00; fixed-address;}

    2> When I do any reservation for an IP, and the machine is still not connected to the network, will dhcp try to assign that ip to some machine?? <i beleive not but my senior says so, hence I am in a dilema>

    Hi CJ,

    I'm not a 100% sure, but I believe that reserved addresses are automatically skipped in de dhcp pool. But why not try it with a very small set of addresses? I'm happy to hear the result.
