AW: Can we reload the config without killing the service?

That is a subject of an earlier thread. To put it concisely, the first server in the failover pair never recovers without additional attention.

I am trying to find a way to get along until I can upgrade to something post-4.2.6. Reloading the config without restarting the service, if available, might accomplish that.

why don’t you restart the dhcp-server:
sudo service isc-dhcp-server restart
sudo service isc-dhcp-server6 restart for IPv6

Betreff: Can we reload the config without killing the service?

Is there a way to reload the config in ISC DHCP 4.6.2 without actually killing the process?

If so, would that avoid the problems caused by the "gentle shutdown" in a failover configuration?
