Can S series switches assign the existing static addresses to other terminals

For S series switches excluding the S1700, when there are IP addresses (including static IP addresses) located on the same network segment, the switch will not assign the IP address to other terminals. Before assigning an IP address to a client, the DHCP server must ping the IP address to check whether this IP address is in use. This prevents address conflicts.
Address detection refers to the maximum number of ping packets that a DHCP server sends and the maximum timeout interval of each ping reply are set using the dhcp server ping { packet number | timeout milliseconds } * command in the system view. If there is no response to the ping packet within a specified 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, the DHCP server detects that the IP address has not been used by any device on the network segment. This ensures that there is only IP address allocated to the DHCP client.
