dhcpd on Solaris 10

Hi *,

I am pulling my hair out trying to serve the simplest of setups using
ISC dhcpd on Solaris 10.

The problem is that the DISCOVERS come in.
dhcpd responds with OFFER.
Client never sends REQUEST.

The exact same config on a linux box works as predicted.

Packet trace of differences between the 2 OFFERS (sent by linux and
Solaris) is that the Solaris offer has:

server-ip-address set to,
while linux,
server-ip-address set to (x.x.x.x ip of dhcpd server)

I have tried every option to get the solaris box to correctly set this
option (even server-identifier) but to noavail.

Could someone please shed some light?

Kind regards
