We have a network with around 80devices, all PC's are on DHCP however we have some people (mainly engineers) who sometimes come in and plug there laptops in however they forget sometimes they are on DHCP.
Question was is there any way to prevent this from happening? not sure if there are any special switches that would have this functionality or any other ideas...
I was thinking to configure DHCP so that it pings before assigning an IP address but will still not help in majority of cases as sometimes the laptops have the same IP as routers/servers and also some have already been handed out by DHCP..
