    I have been successfully using dhcp3 server running on Ubuntu 8.04 server. I have jsut made some changes, especially added some static leases binding on mac address.

    My question is, how to re-lease i.e. how to re allot IP to already leased active client?

    refreshing ip config will happen after the expire, so you either have to wait for that, or restart the dhcpclients on your clients.

    The information DHCP server gives the client is static not dynamic so they don't even need to see the dhcp server ever again unless the information goes away.

    So you have to trigger the update client side, not server side.
