[Kea-users] 1.3.0 beta not working with mysql

It's stored as an unsigned integer, so in theory it's max is
|4294967295.  Certainly much larger than 604800.  For grins, I used that
value on a machine running MySQL and it inserts leases just fine.

Using the unsigned int max value, though  blows up time calculations
which manifests itself as this error:

2017-10-06 13:29:57.202 ERROR [kea-dhcp4.alloc-engine/1888]
ALLOC_ENGINE_V4_ALLOC_ERROR [hwtype=1 08:00:27:99:72:be], cid=[no info],
tid=0x489a9: error during attempt to allocate an IPv4 address: Could not
create bind array from Lease4:, reason: Time value is too
large: 5802278292

Clearly different from your whose reason is (error code 0).

I ask this because I've just noticed a slightly odd number set for that option and it was set as "604800", I can't imagine why I set it that high or if it was a typing error. I've set that to a more reasonable value of "86400" and restarted my kea 1.3 servers and pointed them to my Percona cluster, lo and behold they came up with no errors (all three of them). They're all sitting there responding to DHCP requests, to say I'm surprised is an understatement!
