I'd like to know how you can assign a static IP address to a computer using Active Directory.
I know it is possible with a user using the Dial-in tab, but doing it on a computer has no effect (unless I have missed a specific policy parameter).
Currently I am using DHCP reservations, but it requires having IP addresses in the DHCP range and writing down MAC address to type it on the server.
I am trying to find a way that wouldn't require the use of the obscure MAC adresses by using AD computer names.
Also, I'd like to have my DHCP range cover only the addresses actually used by DHCP clients and not rely on exclusions.
My AD forest and domain have a functionnal level of Windows Server 2008 R2 (because I have Win 7 computers) but I'm using Windows Server 2012.
Thank you everyone for your help.
