Multiple lease entries by single client



  • Perhaps this is how it's supposed to work but … in my /var/dhcpd/var/db/dhcpd.leases file I have some clients with multiple entries. For example,

    =============================

    lease 10.1.4.139 {
      starts 1 2011/04/18 19:19:07;
      ends 2 2011/04/19 07:19:07;
      binding state active;
      next binding state free;
      hardware ethernet 00:21:00:17:c7:8c;
      uid "\001\000!\000\027\307\214";
      client-hostname "CFA1000818";
    }
    lease 10.1.4.139 {
      starts 1 2011/04/18 19:19:10;
      ends 2 2011/04/19 07:19:10;
      binding state active;
      next binding state free;
      hardware ethernet 00:21:00:17:c7:8c;
      uid "\001\000!\000\027\307\214";
      client-hostname "CFA1000818";
    }
    lease 10.1.4.139 {
      starts 1 2011/04/18 19:19:18;
      ends 2 2011/04/19 07:19:18;
      binding state active;
      next binding state free;
      hardware ethernet 00:21:00:17:c7:8c;
      uid "\001\000!\000\027\307\214";
      client-hostname "CFA1000818";
    }

    =============================

    This particular client has at least another 5 entries with the only difference being the lease start/end times.

    ALSO -- I'm unable to delete clients like this using the web GUI. Likely due to the multiple entries in the lease file.

    Any ideas why clients are being recorded multiple times in the lease file?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jason



  • Hi…

    that is a strange one...
    I was looking at your subject and thought about wireless however the lease appears to be the same nic...
