Want to change DHCP Domain Name



  • Desired result > Correct domain in dhcp.

    Error1;
    I made a mistake in my Domain Name for the DHCP. I added the suffix for pfSense when I shouldn't have. When I change it, pfSense stops working. There is no web gui, no internet, no dhcp until I restart the server. Then the setting isn't saved.

    Walk me through the steps and I'll tell you what I have tried and hasn't worked. I'm stumped.

    I thought disabling or stopping DHCP would allow the change. Disabling = Error2. Stopping = Error3.

    Error2;
    Disable DHCP, get "Disable DHCP Registration features in DNS Resolver before disabling DHCP Server". So, I disabled 'DHCP Registration' and 'Static DHCP' in the resolver, produces error4.

    Error4;
    Uncheck 'DHCP Registration' and 'Static DHCP' in the resolver, click save, click apply, returns 'The changes have been applied successfully'. Boxes are magically rechecked. In response I stop the DNS Resolver produces Error5

    Error5;
    Click stop, apply, returns 'The changes have been applied successfully'… NOT stopped.. OK... In response I disable DNS Resolver, produces Error6.

    Error6;
    Uncheck 'enable DNS resolver', apply, returns 'The changes have been applied successfully'. But it snaps back to checked and enabled.
    END = Insanity.

    Error3;
    Click stop button, stop button disappears. In this state changing the Domain produces Error1. In this state, attempt to uncheck 'Enable DHCP server on ARARO interface' produces Error2.
