I'm setting up a small unattended network containing one server and several node machines that communicate with that server. Is setting up a reserved entry on the network router's DHCP server for each node machine reliable enough?
By that I mean things like:
. Recovery from one switch system shutdowns/startups
. Recovery from operational tasks like individual device reboots
. Consistant and quick IP address handout
Or is it a better rule of thumb to use a static IP for each node machine?
