DHCP static lease
When assigning a static DHCP lease, I had to first go to the DHCP>Server and adjust the DHCP range to allow static leases outside the range. So, I set the range from 192.168.11 to 192.168.99, leaving 192.168.100 and up for static leases. Then I was allowed to set static leases.
Later this afternoon, I went to assign one further static lease and found that the DHCP range had reset to the full range and I had set the range again so I could add the static lease. Is this supposed to happen?

Hint... Did you safe and apply?
Same procedure works here fine for me
I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to make static DHCP leases unless I had saved such a range.
Here's what I did:
- Services>DHCP Server> set range from 192.168.1.11 to 192.168.1.99
- Status>DHCP leases: Used + button to add static, then chose IP addresses from the range of 192.168.1.100 and up.
- Save then apply.
This worked successfully and had most of my devices set as static in the 192.168.1.100 and up range.
Later in the afternoon I went to add a few more devices that had connected to the LAN by going:
- Status>DHCP leases: Used the + button to add static address above 100.
- Got message that I had to choose an address outside the DHCP range.
- Navigate to Services>DHCP Server: I found that the range had returned to the default range.
- Reset range from 192.168.1.11 to 192.168.1.99
The range has remained as I set it yesterday so far. I guess I'm curious if there is something I might have done elsewhere in pfsense that may have caused the DHCP range only to revert to the default setting, or if I found a bug. Or, if that bug was, inadvertently, me.
