Cases where the system can not assign the IP address to match the MAC address.

    This is with respect to simulating a static IP using DHCP Server.

    Client Reservation is to simulate Static IP using the Dynamic IP with a
    DHCP server where in we associate the MAC address of the device to the
    required IP address. By doing this when DHCP allocates IP to its
    clients, it will check for the MAC address of the client and will give
    the same IP always.

    Does this happen always? Or are there some scenarios where in the
    system will NOT assign the IP Address to match the MAC Address?

    As far as i know and also checked on the net, it is an ideal scenario
    which ALWAYS works. Please correct me if i am wrong.

    Thanks,
    Regards,
    CP.

  2. CP,

    I've never come across an instance where a reservation has not worked.
