I'm not a network admin, but I have an old Cisco Catalyst 3560 for my network. I've successfully set up a DHCP Pool:
ip dhcp pool 192.168.0.0 network 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 default-router 192.168.0.254 dns-server 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124
And my computers can happily connect and get an IP address. However my step is that I'd like to assign some static IP addresses within that same subnet. Here's what I started with:
ip dhcp pool Static host 192.168.0.11 255.255.255.0 hardware-address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx default-router 192.168.0.254 dns-server 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
However, when I try an ipconfig /renew on the PC with MAC address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx, I get the following:
An error occurred while renewing interface Ethernet : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.
I feel like I'm probably missing something simple. It definitely seems to be recognising the MAC address since the behaviour is different with the Static pool configured, can anyone help me work out why DHCP is timing out? Any help would be much appreciated!
