    DHCP Pool Creation

      What are the commands to create a DHCP pool reservation for a single host?

        • Re: DHCP Pool Creation



          To create a DHCP pool reservation for a single host, you will need to know the MAC address of the host that will be requesting DHCP. Further reference and examples are available in our "Configuring DHCP in AOS" document.


          The commands to set up a single host DHCP pool are below:


          1. Create a new DHCP server pool with a name indicative of the host.

              (config)# ip dhcp-server pool <pool name>

          2. Identify the host allowed to take the address in the pool by its MAC address:

              (config-dhcp)#: hardware-address <MAC address>

          For example:

              (config-dhcp)#hardware-address d2:17:04:91:11:50

          3. Specify the IP address for the host. The router automatically assigns the address with its natural

          mask. If your organization uses variable-length subnetting, make sure to include the subnet mask or

          prefix length for the host’s subnet:

               (config-dhcp)# host <A.B.C.D> <subnet mask | /prefix length>

          4. Specify the default gateway:

               (config-dhcp)# default-router <A.B.C.D>

          5. Configure other settings such as DNS and WINS servers and a domain name.

          6. You can also assign the client a name:

               (config-dhcp)# client-name <name>

               For example: (config-dhcp)#client-name LAN2Switch
