@longneck Thanks. For some reason, I thought root could do that... Although I've never tried, so I'll take your word for it. Thanks for explaining though

As someone who doesn't know better, why are people down voting this? Is this not a good practice?

comment What are the pros & cons of 4xSSD(512Gig) in a RAID10 vs. 2xSSD(1Tb) no RAID?
Would the RAID 10 not give 4x the read speed, since it's reading from 4 drives at a time?

Perfect! I denied the DLC groups from my main pool, and a couple hours later, they had their new IPs. Thanks!

@Zoredache Want to make that an answer? It seems to have been solved now :)

@Zoredache Not yet, but I'll try that and report back. That shouldn't kill the computers' connections during the work day, though :)

comment Forcing clients to get new IP Address from DHCP Server
I'd probably try the ipconfig /release * and ipconfig /renew *, since just restarting the DHCP Client service won't have it ask for a new address.

@HBruijn I'll give that a try tonight, and report back. I know that just unplugging and plugging the cable in does not work for our network, but I'll try resetting the switches.
