Unhappy Resetting DHCP leases files

I have been using DHCP on Suse 9.3 for some time.
Then changed the access controls to restrict unwanted users. Somehow the old IPs are still appearing on user machines despite their MAC controlled IPs in Groups and Subgroups.
Any idea on how I could reset the lease files so that the users get the new IPs instead of earlier IPs?

If I remember well, in some versions of dhcpd the already given leases are renewed on request. If you delete them in the /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases that should be gone.

I take it you did not forget to restart dchpd after you made your changes.
