    Static Ip's

    Sorry for this question but its a monday morning.

    We have now got a Nas box to help with our storage. how do I assign it a static IP. Do I need to set it in DHCP and DNS Manager?

    You may of got some software for the NAS to locate it on the network and setup the basic parameters. Google the Make/Model for Basic setup guide if in doubt.

    When you have given it an IP create a DNS record so it can be located by name instead of IP. You could also set a DHCP reservation so if something happens to the config it will allways pick up the same IP.

    I guess most NAS boxes these days have either software or web gui to manage then so you could set the IP on the box and put a record into DNS.
    Or, get the MAC address and put a reservation in DHCP.

    Cheers guys just a bit stuck .
    In its GUI I have set the Local Ip, Subnet mask and default gateway. What is needed in the primary DNS server box? ( we have only one server)

    How do i do

    If you only have one server then this will be doing DNS (well I sincerely hope! ) so enter your server IP.
    How do i do
    Go to into DNS, expand your forward lookup folder, right-click your domain and click 'New Host (A)', in the box enter the hostname, IP address and tick the box to create a PTR record (to enter it into reverse lookup).

    You should put in a reservation in DHCP to prevent something else grabing the IP.
