Hi all, this is a very basic (and hopefully easily answered) question. We have several people administering IPAM, DNS, DHCP, etc and I've recently discovered that everyone is kind of doing things their own way and I'd like to standardize. I use hosts 99% of the time and occationally a Reservatation in some specific circumstances. Can anyone tell me if there's ever a reason you wouldn't use a Host? I can't really see any reason to use, say, a Fixed Address or to manually create an A/PTR record when the Host encapsulates all that and more. I was asked to make my case and create some standard proceedures but I'm not really seeing any reason to go with anything other than Hosts during my research. I just wanted to cover my bases and see if there was any feedback on this. Thanks.
