Hello, I am using a 1811W and CCP for configuration. I am trying to assign client names to devices on the LAN so that when a network scanner is used, the client name is displayed. I have attached part of the running config after a binding has been done. My assumption is that the scanner should now show 192.168.1.109 as name <Supermicro>, but the name is blank. Is this configured correctly for what I am trying to acheive? Thanks, Roger
Have you tried to create a manual binding for one of the computers (Windows if possible) using the client-identifier instead of the hardware address option?
Router(config)# ip dhcp pool
Router(dhcp-config)# host[mask | /prefix-length]
Here is an example (you will need to create one "pool" per computer):
Router(config)# ip dhcp pool PC-1
Router(dhcp-config)# host 192.168.1.5 mask 255.255.255.0
Router(dhcp-config)# client-identifier 01c2.070e.b000.66 --- > please notice that you need to include "01" and change the "." as showed on the example.
Where "c207.0eb0.0000" is the MAC address of the PC.
Microsoft DHCP clients require client identifiers instead of hardware addresses. The client identifier is formed by concatenating the media type and the MAC address. For example, the Microsoft client identifier for Ethernet address b708.1388.f166 is 01b7.0813.88f1.66, where 01 represents the Ethernet media type. For a list of media type codes, refer to the "Address Resolution Protocol Parameters" section of RFC 1700, Assigned Numbers.
To specify the hardware address of a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client, use the hardware-address DHCP pool configuration command. It is valid for manual bindings only.
The windows computers are reporting their names correctly on network scanning. I am having problems with non windows devices, such as several IP based thermostats, and IPMI 2.0 on a server. Any suggestions?
Best Regards, Roger
Did you try the client-identifier with those devices? I guess they are non RFC compliant and that's why you are having problems.
