How do I modify the DHCP server?
Authored by: gjm25 on Sep 07, '04 09:45:58AM

I am running 10.3.5 server with Apple's DHCP and DNS servers. Would love to do this at the server side using DHCP as the hint suggests, but do not know how to assign IPs based on MAC address. The UI does not allow it as far as I can see, and I don't know where to start looking for configuring DHCP from the command line. Any pointers/links?

You can define static bindings in OSXS's DHCP by defining hosts in Workgroup Manager and assigning them MAC addresses. Apple's DHCP automatically serves those machines with static IP addresses.

in the domain "machines" make an entry per machine with the following properties:

- name (the name of the box; can be anything)
- ip_address (guess what: the reserved ip)
- en_address (the mac-address)

thats it. the buildin dhcp-server will now give the reserved ip to the designated box.
