Well I don't have a solid-answer for this, but i have to have this setup
this is a possible scenario in field.

2) What does dhcp2 log when it NACKs a request ? Not just the single

With the debug level I have (dhcpd -d) it just reads 2 lines, I have lost
the logs,
First line reads: Received DHCP-REQUEST from <MAC> via eth0
Second line reads: Sends DHCP-NACK,

Thats all I see for for that client mac address, would require exact debug
statements ?
Is there way I can enable detail debugs, if need it?
