I have a dhcp server that assigns IPs from 172.16.1.10-17..16.3.10. Now when it reaches the end of 172.16.0. range, the next IP it assigns is 172.16.1.0 How can I set the DHCP server to not assign the .0 IP of each range
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
There is nothing wrong with assigning .0 and .255 addresses IF they are valid for the subnet in question, i.e. not for a /24 ethernet network as they have special meaning, but fine part way through a /23 or larger.
If for some reason you object to having .0 present specify multiple non-overlapping ranges in your IP pool - 172.16.1.10-184.108.40.206,172.16.2.1-220.127.116.11,172.16.3.1-18.104.22.168
Or create dummy static entries (with nonexisting MAC address) on the addresses you do not want to assign.
But indeed, it is no problem at all. We run /22 networks all the time with a 1000-address IP range and people are happily using .0 and .255 addresses.
