DHCP Reservation for DHCP Server

    DHCP Reservations are usually for servers and clients that you want to
    reserve an IP address based on MAC address, but is there a way to setup your
    DHCP Server to dynamically receive an IP address via DHCP reservation?

    I am thinking I could set this up somehow, but can't get it to work.

    I know I can setup a static address for my DHCP server and have no problems
    but I wanted to see if I could reserve an IPAddress for my DHCP server (which
    would in essence be like a static IP address, since no other machine could
    take that IP address).

    Thanks in Advance,
    Rick Blake

  2. No, it is not possible.
    DHCP machines must be statically/manually adressed

    have you thought what would happen if the DHCP service were down?
    that's why this is not possible
