With dhcpd 3.0.x when I wanted a particular device, foo, to always be
assigned a certain IP number and still participate in ddns, I defined
a class for just that device and created a pool for it which had just
one IP number. An 'allow members of' statement in this pool along
'deny members of' statements in all other pools kept foo where I
As I understand it this wouldn't work with failover since pools need
to have at least two IP numbers so each peer can be responsible to
half the pool?
Is it possible to use 3.1.0's reserved lease feature to replace this
scheme? The man page seems to say a client can only have a reserved
lease if it requests an infinite lease, or if it OMAPI is used to
configure it. Can a lease only be reserved once it's been allocated,
in which case it's not possible to specify in advance which IP number
a client with a reserved lease will get?
What's the syntax for using OMAPI to reserve a lease?
