"inactive" reservation

We are running DHCP on a 2003 enterprise in our domain. Each scope has
reservations for network printers. Some of the printers are configured as
bootp, while others have static entries. While looking at the various address
leases, I see that the printers which were set up with static IP's are
showing Reservation (inactive). This under the column "Lease Expiration" The
printers are working fine across the network. Can someone tell me why the
"inactive" is coming up?

thanks

Re: "inactive" reservation

A reservation means that a when a particular device (MAC) requests an
address, it will always get the assigned IP. Since you've manually set the
printer to use a static IP, it is never sending a bootp request to the DHCP
server and therefor the DHCP has never assigned a lease, thus showing it as
inactive.

An Exclusion is usually used where a device will be manually set to an IP
address within your DHCP scope.

Thanks,
