DHCP Reservation kick in in real time

When we set up a DHCP reservation for a device currently logged in with a different IP address, have the new IP kick in immediately. I tested this on both firmware 7 and 8 and the new reserved IP does not get assigned immediately.

That’s how DHCP works. The client has a lease time, so its IP won’t change until its lease expires or is manually renewed, link changes, etc.
