In the Lease Duration section, select Unlimited, and select
OK. To avoid the problems that result when IP addresses
change, Hewlett-Packard recommends that you assign
infinite leases to all of your printers. Be aware, however, that
selecting an unlimited lease duration for the scope causes all
of the clients in that scope to have infinite leases.
If you want clients on your network to have finite leases, you
can set the duration to a finite time, but you should configure
all of your printers as reserved clients for the scope.
If you have assigned unlimited leases, skip to step 9.
Otherwise, select Scope, and select Add Reservations to
set up your printers as reserved clients. For each printer,
perform the following steps in the Add Reserved Clients

window, select the reservation that you want to delete,
and select Delete.
To return to the DHCP Manager window, select Close.
