I have 2 ips that have been excluded from the address pool. I would like to put them back in the pool as they no longer need exclusion. What is the proper way to do it? Would this also work with reservations?

Thanks, dmcalert

Go to admistrative tools
Go to DHCP
Expand Scope
Look for exclusion range. (with the red x)
You need to  delete it and recreate the new exclusions by right clicking and hitting new exclusion.

Under scope you will find address pool, i didnt mention that. also address pool is what you need to right click in order to recreate the exclusion range.

Does the excluded ip return to the assignable pool when deleted from exclusion or reservation?

Yes, if and when the following

If your pool is 192.168.10.1-254

And you excluded 192.168.10.1-10

Then you delete the exlclusion and recreate it with 192.168.10.1-7

then 8,9,&10 will be put back into the pool

Actually yes it does, when you delete it, it gets put back into the pool.

I got confused for a sec on what you were asking.

just incase someone is managing the same DHCP server, refresh refreshes the changes that were made.

no its not needed.

Lets say two people are logged in at the same time, 1 person makes a change, the other person won't see it unless they either refresh or close and reopen DHCP.

So just imagine 13 people managing one dhcp server, you would want to refresh to see the changes.

Or if you are looking at your leases, at you boot up 100 pcs. you refresh the screen to see them comming in.

Its just like refreshing any other application, like internet explorer. it has nothing to do with saving changes.
