I'm trying to migrate from a situation with static ip addresses and a dhcp server on a router to one new dhcp server.
My idea was to add the current static ip addresses as static ip addresses in the dhcp server, so I can still manage them from that server, and to move the current dhcp leases to static ones as well, as these ip addresses are more or less used as static ones too, being referred to in hosts.allow etc on some machines for example.
I do however also still need dynamic addresses, and I'd like to know if I can for example define that my pool of dynamic addresses is from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.200, but have some exlusions in that range for the static addresses.
What would my dhcpd.conf have to look like to achieve that, can I just define the pool and define seperate static addresses and will the dhcpd take those out of the pool automatically?
I can't test this setup as this is a live network with a working dhcp on a router already, that's why I have to ask it up front.
