The use will be seen in virtualization worlds, where you would want to dynamically add subnets and define ip ranges for the subnets.  Currently there is no way to do this without stopping dhcpd and restarting it.  Ideally it would be good to extend OMAPI to define a SUBNET object and be able to create it.  Any reason why the omapi support did not include subnets in the first place ?Vithal Shirodkar> Date: Thu, 10 Aug 2006 23:00:36 +0100> To: dhcp-users at isc.org> From: dhcp1 at thehobsons.co.uk> Subject: Re: will dynamic dhcpd.conf be supported in future releases> > ashok singh wrote:> >when is some signal to dhcpd, it should reread the configuration? > >Will this be supported in future releases?
