When a DHCP server needs to be redeployed, you need to migrate the address pool on the DHCP server to another DHCP server on the live network. To retain the addresses that have been assigned to clients from a global address pool, run the lock command to lock the global address pool. After the lock command is run, the specified IP address pool is locked and IP addresses in this address pool cannot be assigned to clients. When new users get online after the address pool is migrated, they apply for IP addresses from a new address pool. Perform the following configuration: [Huawei] ip pool global1 [Huawei-ip-pool-global1] lock

How is global address pool modified on an AR
A Huawei AR allows the global address pool to be changed using command lines. Assume that the global address pool is on the network segment and the network segment needs to be changed to Perform the following configurations: [Huawei] ip pool pool1 [Huawei-ip-pool-pool1] undo network //Delete the original network segment. [Huawei-ip-pool-pool1] network mask //Configure the current network segment.

Methods used to configure the excluded IP address on the AR
During network planning, some IP addresses in an address pool may be used by servers or other hosts, or some clients can be configured with specified IP addresses only because of special requirements. In this case, you need to exclude these IP addresses that cannot be automatically allocated from the address pool, preventing IP address conflicts. Assume that IP addresses in the range of to cannot be dynamically allocated. The configuration on the AR is as follows: - Interface address pool [Huawei] dhcp enable [Huawei] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1 //Enter the view of the interface connected to the DHCP clients. [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] undo portswitch [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] ip address 24 [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] dhcp select interface [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] dhcp server excluded-ip-address - Global address pool [Huawei] dhcp enable [Huawei] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1 //Enter the view of the interface connected to the DHCP clients. [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] undo portswitch [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] ip address 24 [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] dhcp select global [Huawei-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] quit [Huawei] ip pool global1 [Huawei-ip-pool-global1] network mask 24 [Huawei-ip-pool-global1] excluded-ip-address

How to modify the router AR address pool address range?
