How to modify static DHCP leases?


  • Hello all,

    I have several machines defined in my static DHCP leases file.  I like leaving my servers as DHCP enabled, and then setting all of their configuration in pfsense for the DNS, WINS, etc.  That's convenient and it's been working well.

    However, recently I decommissioned a machine and replaced it.  I want the new machine to have the same IP address and name as the old machine.  I can't find a way to remove my static entry, nor edit it.  I tried checking the dhcp leases file to edit it manually, but it doesn't have static entries in it - only the dynamic ones.  How can I edit an existing static lease?

    Thanks,

    Aaron
