Hi all,
For ISC DHCP-4.2.3, how many lease entries the lease file can contain at the max???
Consider DHCPv4 server is running and it will store the lease entries in dhcpd.leases
If I stop the server and run again what will happen to dhcpd.leases whether it will append again in dhcpd.leases.
Also while running DHCPv4 server dhcpd.leases~ created automatically.
What is the purpose of the dhcpd.leases~  file?
