Hi all, im trying to setup dhcp pools but somehow my assignments are not working…
In general i have one pool (lets call it default pool) and i have another pool (lets call it dedicated) which has MAC set under MAC Address Control->allowed .
What im trying to do is to create pools with some MAC under allow section and have a "fallback" pool for clients which have no MAC listed in any of pools.
If i understand correctly, both default and dedicated pools match my client and default pool is being used.
Is there a way (without mangling with dhcpd.conf) to define such "fallback" pool? i would like to avoid listing every single MAC in deny section of default pool...
I define a pool for dynamic clients, say .129-.254 and create static mappings outside of that pool for specific MAC addresses. If the MAC has a static map, it gets the static config. If not, it gets the pool config.
It all just works.
Well static mapping is definitely going to work but i would like to avoid it since ill have to manage ip's by myself, not mentioning i won't be able to manage them in bulk .
I was thinking of having allow class for dedicated pool and deny class for default pool but was not able to find a way to define that in GUI.
Ok so you want a dedicated but dynamic pool. Sorry I misunderstood.
Am i asking to much?! ;) You see , im going to have 4-5 pools later to be used for qos/routing/fw rules and managing all this on per device will going to be painful…
Anyway, thanks for reply and spending your time on me :)
