We are using a include option in dhpd.conf file which is for DHCP Server
Configuration extension Data. In the extension data file we mention the
Fixed-Address host declaration. Addition of fixed address is done by
using the tool. I would like to know is there any way were after add or
delete dhcp stop/start is not required to get those changes working . 

Our DHCP servers are running in  failover. Addition/Deletion of host
happens very frequently and same time DHCP restart also done and cause
DHCP going out-of sync.


Thanks in advace.
