dhcpcd would need the ability to solicit multiple lease requests from the dhcp server, which im not sure is something its capable of.  the dhcp server would also need the ability to track multiple leases, not just renewals, from a single mac.  presently the only way to do this is through static range assignments in dhcpd, but it still doesnt solve the problem of a client that can solicit N+1 requests.


youll need to assign the IP's as static in gentoo.  if you have a number of servers to do this on, and wanted to use DHCP as an automation tool, you may want to consider chef, ansible, or salt to help.
