I'd like to know if DHCP can be turned off outside of business hours rather than having to schedule switch ports to shut off network access.

    Hi @Swarthout, Matt ,

    Unfortunately there's no feature/way to do this within DHCP itself, of course you could create a scheduled task and disable the DHCP Server service on your DHCP server(s), but that's the only way I can think of and doing this.

    The other way is to configure the DHCP lease times according to your needs.
