    Default Remove or Delete current dhcp leases

    I just wanted to post this info, because I couldn't find it in this forum.

    I was trying to delete all of the old dhcp leases and start from scratch without changing the settings for my saved static ip.

    For everyone information this is what I did to resolve the issue.
    1) turn off the dhcp server
    2) rename the /var/lib/dnsmasq/xxx.lease file to xxx.backup
    3) turn on the dhcp server
    4) power cycled my switches


    I got the info mostly for this site...

    I'm not sure why'd you'd ever want to do this, but in any case, power cycling the switch isn't necessary.

    Default Limited DHCP features

    Thanks for posting the information on the DHCP file and link to more DHCP information.

    This may be usefull to me in dealing with an issue I have had (and still have) relating to my client machines not being able to obtain and address, but there are more available in my range.
