Before you add IP addresses, you must add the network that owns the addresses to the DHCP service. See Adding DHCP Networks for information about adding networks.
You can add addresses with DHCP Manager or the pntadm command.
On networks that are already managed by the DHCP service, you can add addresses in several ways with DHCP Manager:
Add a single IP address – Place one new IP address under DHCP management.
Duplicate an existing IP address – Copy the properties of an existing IP address managed by DHCP, and supply a new IP address and client name.
Add a range of multiple IP addresses – Use the Address Wizard to place a series of IP addresses under DHCP management.
The following figure shows the Create Address dialog box. The Duplicate Address dialog box is identical to the Create Address dialog box, except that the text fields display the values for an existing address.
The following figure shows the first dialog of the Add Addresses to Network wizard, used to add a range of IP addresses.
