The best way to assign a static IP to server to be installed in future is to reserve a particular IP in IPAM and assign a dummy MAC address to it.
Later when the server is ready, you can change it to exact MAC address of the server.
Please let me know if you need any help.
Thanks for the response but I don't see how this would help. I won't remember to go back in and change the mac nor should I have to. I just want to assign the IP addresses once and be done with it.
go in and set it to reserved, add some comments perhaps on what should be taking it, maybe a date...I have custom properties for assigned by; date assigned; etc..
when the system comes online and IPAM scans the network, it will go from reserved to active.
