This document extends the definition of the DHCPFORCERENEW message for parameter reconfiguration in DHCPv4. This extension makes the DHCPFORCERENEW message more suitable to reconfigure configuration parameters other than IP addresses, and aligns the behavior of the reconfiguration procedure in DHCPv4 to the corresponding behavior in DHCPv6.
