Am I bonkers or does "deny client-updates;" directive does not have any
I checked the syntax with "dhcpd -t" which is happy to accept it as
The man page dhcpd.conf(5) indicates "deny client-updates" but the
discussion parts say to use "ignore client-updates;".
"allow client-updates" works - this is the default
"ignore client-updates" works.
"deny client-updates" doesn't work.
Am using DHCP v4.0.0.
So its easy to spot here's the extract from man dhcpd.conf(5)
The client-updates keyword
deny client-updates; <<< NOPE: should be ignore
The client-updates flag tells the DHCP server whether or not to honor
client's intention to do its own update of its A record. This is only
when doing interim DNS updates. See the documentation under the heading
INTERIM DNS UPDATE SCHEME for details.
I have fixed this in my environment by using "ignore client-updates" but
was scratching my head for a while.
Would be nice if whoever maintains the code to check and please update
the man page?
