>Hi All,
>I got a dhcpd core file and multiple dhcpd.leases were present in the lease 
file directory after the core was generated. I am using ISC DHCP 3.0.3. Is this 
a known issue for 3.0.3 ? If yes, was this fixed in any of the later releases?

Are you running out of disk space in the filesystem where the
leases file is? This is because periodically dhcpd renames the
current leases file, then writes out a new one. As the renames do not
appear to be working properly the crash could be in that area. What
are the last few mesages in syslog prior to the crash?

Ifyou search the archives using the string 'gdb' it can report
the functions on the stack to see where the error occurred. From
this we might be able to work out what the problem might be.

Not sure if there is any specific core dump issue fixed, but
running the latest stable version is always a good idea.
