How do I release an Ip address from a cisco DHCP pool

I have a machine that will not release its ip address.  It gets it address from DHCP server setup on cisco 2600 router.  I have had the user turn the machine off then back on and it still gets the same address.  The machine is setup for DHCP.  I even set the DHCP lease on the router to 0 0 1.

On the laptop before rebooting have you gone into the command prompt and done "ipconfig /release"  this will actually do a let go more than a reboot may.  Then You said its an exclusion have you created the static entry for the polycom unit?  Also you may want to clear the NAT table and arp cache on the router so that it can completely forget the mac address of your laptop.

what ikalmar posted is a how to create a reservation but if you want the binding deleted so that another device can get that address or so that your laptop gets a new address use what I put.  Also as a note there is a chance if it is the next address in the pool and no other devices request an IP it may still get that IP.

I excluded the address x.x.x.244 they were using and I also did a clear ip dhcp binding on the address.  The user still gets the same address when they reboot.  I excluded the address because I want to make it static for a polycom video unit.
