DHCP Server - Different IP Range based on computer name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a large DHCP address scope.

    I need to differentiate IP Range based on various policies, but 1 in particular:

    FQDN (example: all clients that have a FQDN that starts with COMPANY-M (names are COMPANY-M01, COMPANY-M02...))

    When I create the Policy, If in conditions I add the Fully Qualified Domain Name criteria,

    the IP Address Range tab is greyed out, and I can't assign IP ranges.

    If I add other type of conditions, for example Vendor Class criteria, the IP Address Range tab is activated.

    Why this?

  • Hi Intercom,

    A policy with conditions based on fully qualified domain name can have configuration settings for DNS but not for options or IP address ranges.

  • Hi,

    thanks for reply, so if I can't use the FQDN,

    I will try to understand how to use vendor o user class and assign them to my clients,

    to distinguish them from other devices, and apply dhcp policies based on user/vendor classes.

    Best regards
