DHCP Server Configuration

By joshhansen ·
On windows server 2003 running DHCP server services, I would like to create a scope with 20 assignable ip addresses but only give these address to a list of approved MAC addresses. We don't care what address is given, just that it is give to an approved MAC address. I don't want to assign a specific address to a specif MAC. Here is why... We use DHCP for laptop computers only. There are about 50 laptop users but we would never have all 50 at the same location at the same time. If our scope is set to a pool of 20 addresses or less, that would be preferred. How can this be done? Thanks

joshhansen - there is no possibility to do what you want in Windows - assign MAC addresses to an IP pool range, but the solution I gave you will do almost the same thing: specific computers receiving IP addresses from a specific IP pool range.
