Can an AR allocate existing static addresses to other terminals

If an IP address including the static address on the same network segment exists, the AR does not send the IP address to another terminal. Before assigning an IP address to a client, the DHCP server must ping the IP address to prevent address conflicts.
After the dhcp server ping command is executed, the DHCP server can prevent repetitive IP address allocation. The DHCP server pings an IP address to be allocated. If there is no response to the ping packet within a certain period, the DHCP server continues to send ping packets to this IP address until the number of ping packets reaches the maximum value. If there is still no response, this IP address is not in use, and the DHCP server allocates the IP address to a client.
