- Dynamic (used for dynamic assignment pool)
- Router (i.e.. default-gw or standby ip of HSRP. There should be only one per subnet, otherwise you will see multiple networks available from windows network configuration)
- Switch (i.e.. Vlan IP of MDF, IDF switches)
- WAP (wireless AP)
- PC/Workstation (general nodes of dhcp client)
- Other (IP Phones)
Status depends on the Address types you choose when defining the scope.
- Unused (scope to be defined)
- Static (fixed config of IP address)
- Manual-DHCP (IP+MAC binding)
- Automatic-DHCP (Permanent lease)
- Dynamic-DHCP (Limited lease)
RFC2131 - DHCP allocation types
DHCP supports three mechanisms for IP address allocation. In "automatic allocation", DHCP assigns a permanent IP address to a client.
In "dynamic allocation", DHCP assigns an IP address to a client for a limited period of time (or until the client explicitly relinquishes the address).
In "manual allocation", a client's IP address is assigned by the network administrator, and DHCP is used simply to convey the assigned address to the client. A particular network will use one or more of these mechanisms, depending on the policies of the network administrator.
