comment Forcing clients to get new IP Address from DHCP Server
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 :)

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.

@Paul I'll flag for migration if I don't hear anything within the next few weeks. It's not a critical thing, just something that would make my life much easier.

This also doesn't prevent them from plugging in with an ethernet cord. Yes, it could work for the wireless devices, but that also requires updating multiple APs with a blacklist, manually. I would prefer not.

Can you please give a syntax example of dropping the packets based on a Mac address? Otherwise this answer doesn't help me much, other than researching more, and possibly asking more questions on the subject.
