Hi all,
                Consider the scenario below.
                If I am running dhcp server ie dhcpd and I have a conf file at /etc/dhcpd.conf
                I would like to know if change the conf file for example lease time and lease range changes dynamically without stopping the dhcp server.
So that the dhcp server(dhcpd) will take the changed value from conf file and will give the new IP address change. Is ISC code have this kind of support.

                Please let me know.
