Hi Shunze,
The option to configure DHCP reservations is not available in EXOS at this time.  You may want to contact your local sales team with this as a feature request.

Hi, Shunze!

Can you tell what reason for this task?
Whatever you can see MAC - show fdb, abd then see IP on this MAC - show iparp <MAC>

We have DHCP asign random IP for normal users.
But with some VIP usrs (such as my boss), we want to assing a static IP.
Then we can control the normal and VIP users with different rules on firewall.

So I need to know how to assign static IP for the VIP's mac address,
and add the record in X440 switch.

Hi Shunze,
Keep in mind that MAC addresses can be easily be spoofed and used with the VIP's IP address when the VIP is away.  I wouldn't recommend using this method for firewall security rules.
With that, the current DHCP implementation in EXOS does not have options for DHCP reservations.
