Subject: Re: How to force a new IP address from DHCP?

Could be set up this way yes.  However it could also be an entirely new
range that is used for these systems.  

To answer David's question:  
We could go about the necessary DHCP gymnastics to cause that single IP to
not be handed out in your pool.  It is generally a better overall move for
us to spend the few minutes it takes to hunt down the squatter and kick them
from the network via port block.  Also I don't seem to see a problem number
filed on this, are we talking in the hypothetical here?  If not please send
me the case number you have off-list so I can look into this issue.

Perhaps someone from Hostmaster could offer more specific details, but
my understanding is that those IPs will be a subset of the DHCP assigned
For example each building has a dedicated DHCP range(s).  Out of that
dedicated range, you could specify a few machines that would always get
same IPs from campus DHCP.  
Hope this helps.

Thanks.  Hmm, but what if a rogue steals an IP address from our 
assigned range for their static IP?  How could we force DHCP to give 
our machine another address from our assigned range, but not the 
rogue's stolen static IP?
