Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In the scope settings you need to put in exclusions for the IP addresses that are used statically. For example:

Scope: 192.168.10.1 – 192.168.10.254 can be DHCP and 192.168.10.1 – 192.168.10.65 can be excluded and reserved for static use.

    Or you can setup DHCP reservations for your static IP addresses. Reservations are based on the MAC addresses and will always provide the client with the same IP's even though they come from a DHCP server.

    I know by reservation we can do so. If any ip address is staticaly assigned to client this should not be assigned by DHCP to another client by DHCP server. I am facing this problem. Kindly suggest for this.
