I am trying to steer away from our current manual addressing system and embrace the decades-old wonder of DHCP. In our domain and even at my home network DHCP is great - I can use address reservations to handle the need for static IP. However, in our production datacenter, many of our hosts have multi-homed NICs, so it is one MAC address with multiple IP's.
- Is it possible to configure this as a reservation in DHCP? (ie, multiple reservations for one MAC address?)
- If not (1), if it is easy to install as many NICs as IPs in the hosts that are currently multi-homed (they are all VM's), is it advisable to do this and then use DHCP address reservation?
The consensus seems to be: always use DHCP, so I am trying to get us there.
