DHCP: Changing mac address in the system's system tab does not update the DHCP entries accordingly
When we edit a system, ie renaming it, the DNS records are properly updated accordingly When we change the mac, it does not update the DHCP at all
We have to delete records in the DHCP tab (with the old mac) and recreate them.

Steps to Reproduce

It may be great to check the IP change as well but it may not be a good idea according to where the host is attached. We attach our hosts to defined groups, but you may want to attach them to their respective subnets, and then it may scramble the config breaking DHCP Server if the new ip is not in the orginal subnet anymore.
