That's not the same thing. Simon was referring to actually editing the dhcpd.leases file to add the word "reserved" to a lease. This makes it operate much like a reservation, but also much like a dynamic lease. Best of both worlds. No infinite lease time.

You would have to either use omshell to do this or else stop dhcpd, edit the leases file, and start it again.
