DHCP Address Reservation Inactive

I just recently added a reservation to my DHCP scope for a particular IP address.  This IP address is for an HP laser Printer.

However, it says under leases that it is inactive.  How do I force it to become active?

Thanks.

inactive means that the address has not been given out.  Did you set the printer for DHCP and reboot it so that it tries to obtain an address from your server?

No, I had manually assigned this IP address to the printer.  I guess I will have to do a hard reset on it because I cannot telnet into it at this point.

Yeah...if you have the IP hard set, then this will have no effect on DHCP...  You need to clear the IP settings on the printer and then set the printer for DHCP.  then reboot.
