MAC based DHCP changes require reboot

Hello all.   We have several gateways were we are doing MAC based DHCP for client machines.   Everytime we make a change to add, remove or modify an entry, it requires a reboot.   Is there another way to reload the DHCP settings on the gateway without having to reboot the whole gateway/cluster?


Thanks for any help

Re: MAC based DHCP changes require reboot

dhcpd just needs to be killed/restarted.
This is done when you make a DHCP-related configuration change via the WebUI or clish.
When you manually modify the configuration file, this is not done.
A reboot is a sledgehammer way to achieve the same thing.
