Hi all,

So yesterday I changed my DHCP scope from to
I assumed that when a lease expired with one of the lesser addresses it would renew with one of the higher up addresses. (Have less than 50 DHCP clients).

However, I made the change yesterday....and this morning alot of these machines would not renew their IP address! I had to assign static addresses....

What am I missing here??

(This is on a Windows 2003 domain, with a Win2008 server as the DHCP server)
