Hi, I have this simple configuration:

subnet netmask { ignore booting; }

class "test" {
    match pick-first-value (option dhcp-client-identifier, hardware);

subclass "test" 1:00:16:92:3d:d2:08;
subclass "test" 1:00:1b:d7:02:44:17;

shared-network share {

    subnet netmask {
            option routers;
            pool {
                    allow members of "test";
                    deny unknown clients;



You can see two macs address in the class "test" and one pool in to them, but the DHCP says:

dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:1b:d7:02:44:17 via network share: no free leases
dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:16:92:3d:d2:08 via network share: no free leases

If I put manually something like this in the pool statement:

pool {
    host test1 { hardware ethernet 00:16:92:3d:d2:08; }
    host test2 { hardware ethernet 00:1b:d7:02:44:17; }
    deny unknown clients;

The DHCP offer the ip in the pool !

I testing with DHCP Server V3.0.4 and DHCP Server V3.1.1

I have been with this for several hours... some ideas ??? !!!!

Thanks, Bernardo.
