Assigning IPs Based on login with DHCP server

By glenn22 ·
I want to be able to assign an IP to a user based on their login ID when they sign in so that they always retain the same IP. I still want to use DHCP as I want to have a pool of unassigned IPs as well. Currently I have it set up with reservations based on MAC addresses, but I'd like to use logins instead. Any help would be appreciated.
