I have a bunch of devices which have Static IPs on the network, I also want to ensure DHCP doesn't give out those IPs. So I can still add the IP with the MAC address of those devices to the config and that'll be fine correct?
Secondly is there a way to block a device from accessing the network if it's using an IP statically that's already assigned on the network via the DHCP reservation.
IP Camera static IP of 192.168.0.100
This device is setup by myself and should be the only device allowed on the network with the .100 address.
I add that cameras MAC address to the DHCP Reserve as a measure of protection so the DHCP server doesn't give out that address.
Now someone comes along and decides they want to plugin a device that they configured with the .100 address that's not my camera. This now causes a conflict on the network, I want the network to not allow this device on.
The network consists of a SA520 and SG500 switches.
