Remove DHCP scopes when a subnet is no longer in use or when you need to renumber your network to use a different IP address range.
Do not remove a scope while it has active leases. Before you remove a scope, deactivate the scope until all client leases expire or all lease renewal requests are denied. When you have confirmed that the scope no longer contains active leases, you can remove it by using the DHCP snap-in. For more information about deactivating scopes, see "Deactivate a scope"Deactivate a scope in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003.
