Unknown subnet in logs

I've been seeing messages like this in my dhcp logs lately:

May 19 18:21:16 bam1 dhcpd: DHCPINFORM from via eth0: unknown

May 19 18:21:16 bam1 last message repeated 2 times


However the subnet is defined in the config file:


subnet netmask {

        option routers;

        option broadcast-address;

        option subnet-mask;




This is happening on multiple subnets. Any ideas why this might be
happening? 12.65 is a relay (Foundry L3 switch). I haven't noticed these in
the past.
