Two offers in response to one discovery

I do not have all the details just yet, but I want to ask a general question
to see how much deeper I need to go.


We are using Bradford's Campus Manager, which uses the ISC DHCP server (not
sure yet what version) and it is the only DHCP server on the network. What I
am seeing in a pcap is the WindowsXP client, after a release/renew, send the
discovery and the server responding with 2 offers of 2 different IP
addresses. First question is does this seem to be any kind of normal
behavior? Second question is what additional information do I need to
provide to help resolve this issue?


Thanks - John
