dhcp ip range & ip NIC attribution

I've specified, in my dhcpd.conf, for my subnet an ip range.
I decided to attribute a specific ip adress by NIC adress card so i've declared each client of my subnet.

I don't know if ip adress that are attribued on NIC network card adress have to be in the ip range specified for the subnet.
If it is not, i think the dhcp server would not run properly. Not ?

The Ip address of the machine running dhcpd should NOT be part of the dhcp address range. However, this is different from the subnet declaration, which needs to match on all hosts on your subnet.
