IP ranges on switches, how do you do it?
The school i am at now have around 25 switches on their network. They Ip address's of these are in the IP range that is assigned to the school. THe school have 1024 address assigned by the LEA. The people who put the switches in used 25 IP from the exluded range at the bottom of the range (10 to 35). They aslo added the address tothe DNS records manually???
The switches do have static IP's but we had a power cut the other week and 4 of them have lost their static IP and are now being assigned by DHCP. I have seen before where some school have their Switches set up like this but add the records to DHCP as reservations puerly for record keeping but still keep keep all the switches as static.
Now i am no network guru by any means so could someone advise me what it best practice here. Should they be added to DHCP or DNS just for record keeping? Or should be doind something else?
