The correct answer is A. ip dhcp pool DHCP_pool.


Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol used to dynamically assign IP addresses and other network configuration parameters to devices on a network. To create a DHCP address pool, you can use the ip dhcp pool command in global configuration mode.

The ip dhcp pool command followed by a pool name (in this case, DHCP_pool) is used to create a new DHCP address pool. For example:

Router(config)# ip dhcp pool DHCP_pool Router(dhcp-config)# network Router(dhcp-config)# default-router Router(dhcp-config)# dns-server Router(dhcp-config)# lease 7 Router(dhcp-config)# end

This creates a new DHCP address pool called DHCP_pool and configures it with the network address and subnet mask, default gateway (router), DNS server, and lease time.

The other answer options are:

B. ip dhcp conflict logging - This command enables logging of DHCP address conflicts.

C. service dhcp - This command enables the DHCP server feature on the router.

D. ip dhcp excluded-address - This command is used to exclude certain IP addresses from being assigned by the DHCP server.
