    not really (IMHO)
    Either use Static IPs (with DHCP exclusions) or Reservations

      Thanks Ossian. I think the same
      Will wait for third opinion
      May be somebody else will add couple of words on that.

          Just found that admin does that.
          As result the reserved address that is set as static on host appears as inactive in DHCP. That is why I found this weird thing.
          It is a new DHCP server on vLAN that would serve just servers.
          For me it really doesn't make sense.
          As first step I put back on DHCP servers that I manage Addresses are reserved by his requierement. Now at least it shows DHCP (Active) and is in Reservation.

            makes no sense at all, unless you like doing extra work

              I find that pretty strange if you ask me.

              I have seen reservations created temporarily for users that require access to specific things through a firewall but never for servers.

              Assign a server the static IP address and exclude from the scope.

                I guess that the reservation for servers addresses had just one goal - to have some sort of inventory of servers addresses in DHCP console, instead of manage a list of static adresses in dedicated range, as usually managed... and not to use DHCP for servers

                In current situation probably the right thing will be wullieb1 suggestion.
                To exclude the assigned addresses and use it as static on servers or to leave reserved addresses but not change to static on the machine.
                This whole thing looks really not smart... but it happens.

                Thanks to all for the opinions.
