Option "deny duplicates" does not work
Last modified: 2016-12-20 11:54:47 EST
Description of problem:
I am trying to configure option "deny duplicates" in dhcp server to ignore dhcp client id requests.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Put option "deny duplicates;" in dhcpd.conf to prevent more than one IP per mac, ignoring mac address.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Stop dhcpd server.
2. Put option above.
3. Start dhcpd server
4. Open fedora 23 server with PXE environment
5. Boot one diskless system using PXE
6. Diskless node will get one IP at bootp protocol and another when initrd start work. Anf if you reboot machine it will get another IP (from initrd) because it will create another UID for the same node. And it will not stop until all IPs from subnet are used.
More than one IP per diskless node in dhcpd.leases
Only one IP per MAC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
