DHCP Reservations Explained

For clients that require a constant IP address, you can either manually configure a static IP address, or assign a reservation on the DHCP server. Reservations are permanent lease assignments that are used to ensure that a specified client on a subnet can always use the same IP address. You can use DHCP reservations for hosts that require a consistent IP address, but do not need to be statically configured. Reserved IP addresses differ from statically configured IP addresses in one significant manner: when network parameters are changed at the DHCP server, the device configured with a reserved IP address receives the new network parameters when the device requests renewal of its lease. To change network parameters on a device configured with a static IP address, the changes must be made manually to the device.  Any change in the MAC address of the device or location change of subnet must be updated in the DHCP server.  Use the form below to inform your DNS/DHCP administrator if either of these changes occur.
