    I want to increase the range of reserved addresses in my DHCP scope but what
    will happen to the machines that are currently sat on the network already
    using one of the addresses that is now in the new reserved range?

    WinXP isn't clever enough to discover it itself and renew it's own address?

  4. address?

    How is it supposed to do that? DHCP does not initiate any communication to
    Hosts,...DHCP is *passive*. Communication is always initiated by the Host
    to the DHCP, which is only going to happen when:

    1. The lease is 50% expired (4th day on the default 8 day lease)
    2. A manual forced "release/renew" is performed on the client
    3. The client is rebooted.

    In all of these the client initiates the communication to the DHCP, not the
    other way around.
