I have a custom Linux device running a DHCP server. My DHCP negotiation is always very long (over a minute).
The problem is, the device does not have storage and the leases are flushed everytime the device reboots. When Windows try to obtain an ip address based on old leases, the server cannot simply give back the ip because he has no memory of previously giving it.
I'd like windows 7 to ignore any leases it previously had and ALWAYS initiate with a DHCP Discover instead of a DHCP Request
