I have Ubuntu Server set up as my DCHP server. We have had it install for a few year and our dchp.lease file contain over 4000 entries. I am wanting to clean it up and basically start a new lease file to get current list (@1500 entries).

I have read the walk through on how to make a new lease file and get it started, which leads me to this question.

Will the dhcp server try to give each unit new IP address or will it build the new database with the IP addresses that the the units report to it?
