You can put a peer into partner-down manually, but as soon as it detects
that its partner is back, it will try to get back to normal

Use partner-down to tell a peer that its partner really is down! That
is, remove the partner, shut it down or whatever, and *then* tell the
other to go into partner-down.

Theoretically, shutting down ISC DHCP in an orderly fashion should
result in the partner being told about it, so that it goes into
partner-down automatically.
