Hi guys!

This is Jonna Marie Gomez. I would like to ask something...

The ISC DHCP Server keeps a persistent database of leases that it has
assigned to clients. This database is a free-form ASCII file containing a
series of lease declarations. Every time a lease is acquired, renewed or
released, its new value is recorded at the end of the lease file. So if
more than one declaration appears for a given lease, the last one in the
file is the current one.
When dhcpd is first installed, there is no lease database. However, dhcpd
requires that a lease database be present before it will start. To make
the initial lease database, an empty file called /var/db/dhcpd.leases must
be created.

Is it possible to use mysql or any database applications instead of
dhcpd.leases in keeping a persistent database of leases that has assigned
to clients.?
