    Hi,

    We have a range of IP addresses that are excluded from distribution (fixed
    IP add')
    I have almost used up all the IP addresses that were excluded from
    distribution.
    Is it possible to start a new excluded range?
    I have clients who use dynamic IP addressing.

    What happens if the new excluded distribution range include existing leased
    IP addresses?

    thanks, PL3

    PL3 formulated on dinsdag :
    don't worry
    if the range of available to hold all dynamic leases you don't have a
    problem
    the devices that have an IP address in the range of the new exclusion
    range will get a free IP address the next time they renew their lease
    after a while your new exclusion range will be fully available

    grtz

    You can exclude multiple (disjoint) ranges. You cannot trivially add more
    address to DHCP (without adding another scope and using a superscope
    usually.)
    Don't do that, or expect the client which is currently using it to CONTINUE
    to do so until the lease either expires of the client attempts to renew the
    address
    (fails, and gets a new one.)

    You can force the renewal manually from the client with:

    ipconfig /renew
