Description Thomas M Steenholdt 2002-04-08 06:48:49 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311

Description of problem:
for some reason, using dhcp configuration results in an infinite lease on my
dhcp server(RH7.2 i586). I'm not sure whether this is a client or server
problem. default-lease-time and max-lease-time options have been set. With a
RH7.2 client this would also happen, but it seemed that setting the
DHCP_HOSTNAME in ifcfg-eth0 made the lease more correct. This does not seem to
be the case on skipjack. Windows clients result in correct leases on the server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable DHCP on an interface
2. Restart networking


Actual Results:  on the server, examining the /var/lib/dhcp/dhcp.leases, the new
entry for the test-client shows an end time 1 second before the start time

Expected Results:  on the server, examining the /var/lib/dhcp/dhcp.leases, the
new entry for the test-client should show an end time <default-lease-time> after
start time.

Additional info:

As noted above I'm not entirely sure where the problem lies. This could easily
be a server problem or maybe even a configuration problem - But nothing I've
tried has made it go away for good!
