How to set reserved lease via omshell

After the recent discussion of reserved leases, I decided to try this out
in our environment and do a test with omshell. To my chagrin, I've played
with this all night and am no further along than I was. I'm
running isc-dhcpd-4.2.5, by the way.
Here's what I'm doing:
- enter omshell; give a server and key and connect.
- new lease
- set ip-address = 10.199.67.214
At this point I get the object attributes, which include state =
00:00:00:02 (meaning it's an active lease). I should be able to mark this
as reserved, right? But how do I actually do that?
The man page for dhcpd, under LEASES, says:
Leases have the following attributes:
state integer lookup, examine
1 = free
2 = active
3 = expired
4 = released
5 = abandoned
6 = reset
7 = backup
8 = reserved
9 = bootp
This makes me think that reserved is an attribute of state, thus:
- set state = 9 ; update
- set state = 00:00:00:09 ; update
But I just get "can't update object: invalid argument" when I try to
A desperate bit of googling led me to
https://lists.isc.org/pipermail/dhcp-users/2008-June/006519.html, so I
- set flags = 04:00:00:00
but that just crashed dhcpd for me.
I'm clearly missing something and I'm sure it's obvious, but right now I'm
at sea. Anyone actually done this?
