We need to move the domain controller function to a new server. We have a backup live domain server and all users have connection to it but it can only be accessed using an external ip address. My question is how do I force all the clients to renew their ip addresses inorder to point to the backup dhcp server accross the domain that are currently connected to the domain controller without having to call them and tell them to restart their PC's(ipconfig/renew)

There isn't an option native in DHCP to do what you want.

However you could use PSExec to issue a "ipconfig /renew" command to all the PCs in the domain.
