I'm brain-dead today. I'm sitting here, poking around a server and I notice it pulled a non-reserved IP address. While not technically *bad*, it's still better to have all your servers ips reserved and whatnot. so I go to the dhcp server, create a record for it and get that all squared away, then I connect back to the server in question. I want it to drop the ip it has and grab the one I just assigned it, so I go ahead and ssh to it and type in 'ifconfig down eth0'.
gotta friggin walk over to it now and reset the whole damn machine..
