Environment : This article applies to all the controller models and OS versions.


No, we cannot reserve IP addresses for specific machines on the controller’s internal DHCP server. The Aruba controller’s primary job is to host Access Points and serve wireless clients. Additionally, it provides multiple other functionalities along with DHCP capabilities. Aruba controller can provide basic DHCP functionality.

In case IP address reservation is required, we need to use dedicated external DHCP server.
