10.4: DHCP Static Maps on OS X 10.4 Server
Authored by: RobLewis on Aug 10, '07 12:36:53PM

I discovered this myself months ago after pulling out large quantities of hair. IIRC, you can specify EITHER the client's name or MAC address, but not both. (BTW, I think some 3rd party routers work the same way; I wonder if the RFCs say anything about this.)

The client name is an attractive option, since you can make sure a user always gets the same IP address even if they get a new computer.

Anyway, nice job, Apple, on the documentation and UI...NOT!
