I need to know how to disble the logging of DHCPD leases into the 
file /var/log/messages.

I dont seem to be able to do it with syslogd.

I have a big network with 200 machines all configured by DHCP and my 
file /var/log/messages is really big because of this feature.

You can modify /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd to have DHCPDARGS='-d 2>/dev/null' which
will  (if my guess is correct) send all the log messages to /dev/null instead of
via syslog.

I have modify the file /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd but it still does not work.
I have also try to start the daemon manually with dhcpd -d 2>/dev/null but it 
does not work.

Please I really need to deactivate the logging of dhcpd in /var/log/messages.
