CISCO 2960 allows you to configure so-called Port-Based address allocation. It makes the switch to associate IP address it is giving out via DHCP with port-identifier, which is random, switch created identifier. In practice it means that any machine connected to such configured port will always get the same IP address, regardless of what that machine's MAC address is. I want to have that feature configured on --some ports-- only. But no matter what commands I try it seems that this can only be done for all ports, all for none. Even though CISCO manual seems to indicate there's both global and per-port command to enable that. Here are relevant commands from CISCO manual:
ip dhcp use subscriber-id client-id
(this configures the DHCP server to globally use the subscriber ID as the client ID on all incoming DHCP messages)
ip dhcp server use subscriber-id
(Optional: Configures the DHCP server to use the subscriber ID as the client ID on all incoming DHCP messages on the interface)
but it appears if I configure only per-interface than there's no effect at all, if I configure globally and per interface - CISCo behaves as if all ports were configured to use that feature. Any ideas?
