Setting an IP reservation inside a DHCP scope

It takes too much work to split a DHCP scope when we want to set a reservation for a specific host. We should be able to select an entry in the the DHCP leases and covert the entry to a reservation. This would save lots of time and effort.

thanks for passing this on to the development team.

    @OwaisA when you create a static assignment in the range of a dynamic pool you're greeted with something like this:

    Error: [ -] overlaps with entry [ - 10.1....

    Same goes for Gen7, you cannot create a static assignment inside a dynamic pool.

    @jacksreb you might get in touch with your SNWL Rep to create a RFE, best of luck.

    You can reserve the IP from the DHCP pool to a host.

    Navigate to ARP -->Static ARP Entries -->Add;

    Add your IP address which you want to exclude from the DHCP scope and bind with the host MAC address.
