That's actually exactly what I do, just delete the file. Static
IPs are defined in dhcp.conf, not in .leases. The .leases file just
gets updated every time there's a connection change. I have yet to see
any ill behavior from deleting it. All the systems on the network will
at some point renew without a problem.
