In Windows server 2003, assume a connection session is in place and the remote  host's IP is assigned by a DCHP server.  What would happen if the DHCP server  wants to assign a new IP to the remote host? Will the connection end? or, Will the server wait till the connection is gracefully ended by the user and then assign a new IP to the remote host?

Software/Hardware used:
Windows Server 2003

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The client typically controls the DHCP renewal process. So, if it has an address lease, the server will not be able to dynamically assign a new address to the client without action on the client computer. In other words, the server cannot just “yank” an address from a client that has a lease. The lease will need to expire or the client release and renew the address.
