There was a bug such that the v6 lease file wasn't rotated.  This was fixed
a while ago.

Hi All,


I've been trying to debug why our dhcp-v6 service wasn't starting when this
line appeared in syslog:


dhcpd: /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd6.leases: file is too long to buffer.


Upon checking the file, I found it was a massive 6.2GB in file size!


This server handles a floating number of around 300-500 clients-devices, how
on earth could the leases file grown this large?
