grant the lease and then forget about it. If the first to respond dose not
have the host declaration it will hand it a lease out of the pool for the

Hey All, Sort of an easy issue I’m sure but I’m getting annoyed and could
usethe help. I searched the archives and this must have been covered but I
couldn’t find it. Working on Static Allocations for a couple of machines on
several subnets. I’m running DHCP Server V3.0.1 in a failover setup. In the
dhcpd.master file on each server here’s the config the isn’t working: (I've
tried a couple of slightly different version of this as go) } }
subnet netmask { option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address; option routers; pool {
failover peer "dhcp-failover"; deny dynamic bootp clients; range; } host { fixed-address; hardware
ethernet 00:0a:82:d3:49:22; } host { fixed-address; hardware ethernet 00:34:3f:13:4f:eb; } } I’ve stopped the
service and deleted all the leases for each MAC address and restarted the
service but the machines keep on grabbing an address from the pool. I’m not
getting any info from the log’s that I can find, Do I need to add an option
statement in the file? What easy thing I’m I missing? Aaron --
