However I can't set PARTNER-DOWN on dhcpd1 when dhcpd2 crashes/vanishes,
which is exactly what I need to do. I followed the advice here  and did:
set name = "foo"
set local-state = 1
Upon which the server only switches into commuication-interrupted but
not into partner-down, which is needed in order to claim the other sides
ip-pool. So, the question: How do I switch into PARTNER-DOWN for the
Hope I made my problem understood
