Printer not showing up in DHCP Address Lease
Have added a printer to the network and set it to a static IP on the printer itself 10.72.240.205 .
Installed it on the server and shared it. Can print to it.
However I can't see the IP in the address pool on DCHP to add it to the reservations??
Any other way of doing this to make sure that the IP address doesnt get given to something else?

If you set a static IP the printer won't ask DHCP for an address, therefore it won't show up in the address leases.
You could get the MAC address of the printer and manually add the reservation.
What I do is have an address range excluded from distribution and put all my static IPs in that range.
