Updated: January 9, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Add-DhcpServerv4Reservation

Reserves the specified IPv4 address in the scope for a client.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Add0
Add-DhcpServerv4Reservation [-ScopeId] <IPAddress> [-IPAddress] <IPAddress> [-ClientId] <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Description <String> ] [-Name <String> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Type <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-DhcpServerv4Reservation cmdlet reserves the specified IPv4 address in the scope for a client. Once reserved, the IP address will be leased only to the client identified by the specific client identifier (ID).

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/DHCP/DhcpServerv4Lease

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/DHCP/DhcpServerv4Reservation

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/DHCP/DhcpServerv4Scope

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/DHCP/DhcpServerv4Reservation

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example adds a reserved IP address for the client identified by the specified client ID.


PS C:\> Add-DhcpServerv4Reservation -ScopeId 10.10.10.0 -IPAddress 10.10.10.8 -ClientId F0-DE-F1-7A-00-5E -Description "Reservation for Printer"

EXAMPLE 2

This example adds all of the reservations in the file named Reservations.csv to the DHCP server service running on the computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com. The Import-Csv cmdlet returns the objects with reservation fields and pipes the objects to this cmdlet, which adds these reservations to the DHCP server services. The file named Reservations.csv should contain the reservations in the following comma-separated values (CSV) format:
ScopeId,IPAddress,Name,ClientId,Description
10.10.10.0,10.10.10.10,Computer1,1a-1b-1c-1d-1e-1f,Reserved for Computer1
20.20.20.0,20.20.20.11,Computer2,2a-2b-2c-2d-2e-2f,Reserved for Computer2
30.30.30.0,30.30.30.12,Computer3,3a-3b-3c-3d-3e-3f,Reserved for Computer3


PS C:\> Import-Csv –Path Reservations.csv | Add-DhcpServerv4Reservation -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com

EXAMPLE 3

This example converts one of the leases into a reservation. The Get-DhcpServerv4Lease cmdlet returns the IP address lease object and pipes the object to this cmdlet, which creates the reservation with the IP address and client ID in the lease object.


PS C:\> Get-DhcpServerv4Lease -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -IPAddress 10.10.10.11 | Add-DhcpServerv4Reservation -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com

EXAMPLE 4

This example creates a reservation for the client identified by the specified client ID from any of the free IP addresses in the scope 10.10.10.0. The Get-DhcpServerv4FreeIPAddress cmdlet fetches a free IP address in the scope, then this cmdlet reserves an address for the specified client ID.


 

PS C:\> $freeip = Get-DhcpServerv4FreeIPAddress -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -ScopeId 10.10.10.0

 

PS C:\> Add-DhcpServerv4Reservation -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -ScopeId 10.10.10.0 -IPAddress $freeip -ClientId F0-DE-F1-7A-00-5E -Description "Reservation for Printer"
