hung ip addresses?

Guys,
 At work we are seeing more laptops have a hung ip address when the user
goes home from work, (it retains the ip address from work). Due to security
constraints, they cannot do a release/renew because they lack admin rights.
Does anyone have any suggestions on this?

Thanks,

RF





Re: hung ip addresses?
It's most likely the same security restraints that prevent them from
releasing/renewing their IP manually is also preventing it from working
automatically.

Might want to consider using domain-specific security measures instead.

Re: hung ip addresses?
Is there even a possibility to send this with the DHCP-lease?
I would ask the IT-department to set a lower timeout on the ip-adresses
so that the copmuter would try to get a new dhcp-lease every 5 minutes
or so. (or you could shutdown the laptop during travel home (and then it
would ask for a new ip once you start it up again).

Re: hung ip addresses?
DHCP Server

Under Scope Options

Click on Advanced

Vendor Class Change DHCP Standard Options to Microsoft Options

Select 002 Microsoft Release DHCP Lease on Shutdown

This will release the DHCP address

Hope this is of Help

Re: hung ip addresses?
This helps if you use Microsofts DHCP-server, not the one I currently
use... But I'll look for info about this on my DHCP-server-software.

Re: hung ip addresses?
create a log off script

with the runas Administrator(local)  acount
to release ip address
Create a OU for laptops - create a GPO
you can use the  loopback in the GPO to Merge with laptop Computers

Re: hung ip addresses?
Perhaps try something with the lease time?
