I suffered a corrupted dhcpd.leases file on the secondary of
our DHCP servers for Victoria, Australia. I put the primary into
partner down state, and restarted the secondary with an empty
It is taking a long time for the dhcpd.leases file to grow on the
secondary, and the primary is still in partner down state, though we
