First time posting a question here, please bear with me.
I've been assigned to manage the migration of all our computers and servers from a facility where we have 2 ISP's to a facility where we're going to have only 1 ISP.
- Currently we got one ISP for the office area and the other ISP is for the production.
- Both networks have access to a single NAS for shared files and contain 3 switches (Cisco Catalyst 2960G) in total
- The production area uses static IP's (5 static IPs) where as the offices use DHCP.
The new building we're moving into is going to have only 1 ISP Verizon with 5 static IP's where an ethernet cable going to a switch for distribution.
I'm a programmer and have knowledge on some basics about networking, but I've never done something on this big of a scale.
My question is how can I use the existing switches to assign the fixed IP's to certain servers and production PC's and leave the rest for DHCP like for hard wiring WiFi's and office PC's, printer's, smart TV's etc.?
