dhcpd fails to update dhcpd.leases

Post by Jerry Row » Mon, 03 Apr 2000 05:00:00



What could the possible reasons be?
Am running Redhat 6.1 with a Win NT4 client.
The dhcpd server on the Linux machine does give an IP address, but never puts
anything in the dhcpd.leases file, thus failing to provide a way to  update
DNS.

The LAN is token ring based.

Note, this is an isolated test LAN and not currently connected to the
internet, although that is the aim later on.

dhcpd fails to update dhcpd.leases

I've heard that Redhat 6.1 has some problems with DHCP that were fixed in
6.2 which was just released.

dhcpd fails to update dhcpd.leases

Hi,

I have tried the World to get DHCP client to work on Token Ring, but
gave up....
PLEASE tell me how you got it to work, when you eventually get it
working.
