The ease of management, in my opinion, isn't worth the risk. And, as other posters have said, some servers/services require static IP addresses (domain controllers are a prime example).
Everything is virtualized, and so it takes all of two extra seconds in the customization wizard when I'm deploying a VM to set a static for a server. You could script the reservations from a CSV.

The major risk is still a rogue dhcp server. Dhcp Reservation Vs Static Ip All rights reserved. This is necessary for us since we use some remote administration and update applications over the network which require a static ip. But your IP database is all on the one server so if you ever need to restructure you just change the server, and once everyone reboots it's sweet.

Since the default DHCP address range is between 100 and 149, you'll want to avoid all of the addresses between 192.168.1.100 and 192.168.1.149 when you're assigning static IP addresses.

Extending that metaphor a little further, you might consider your home network as the "nervous system" of your home automation setup. Where is the complexity of that solution? For management purposes, this network being small, it's no big deal to change the IP of static devices since there's so few.

There are things like stateful DHCPv6 that could work, but you may as well go all static anyway.
DHCPv6 uses link-local (fe80::/10) IPv6 addresses when communicating between client and relay/server. Moving a machine to a new subnet? These DHCP packets are handled in software (not hardware accelerated forwarding). It automatically assigns and keeps tabs of IP addresses and any "subnetworks" that require them.
Enterprise organizations will want to take advantage of the centralized dual-protocol DHCP server to provide IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to client devices.

Can't they just ipconfig and use their assigned number? One of the features of DHCP is that it provides IP addresses that "expire." When DHCP assigns an IP address, it actually leases that connection identifier to the user's computer for Have you ever renumbered a subnet, or changed the default gateway to a new device? It does WINS resolution then broadcast for names.
