problem configuring DHCP for multiple networks

problem configuring DHCP for multiple networks

Post by David Anthony Kuzminsk » Tue, 04 Feb 1997 04:00:00



I am trying to set up a DHCP server from an AIX 4.1.4 system but
have run into a problem I can't resolve.  I can set the server up
for one network and it works just fine, but when I try to add
additional networks, dhcpsd will not run.  

My first attempt was to provide addresses to the 204.85.192.0 network,  
and this appears to work just fine.  When I add the 152.2.0.0 subnets,
however, dhcpsd dies.  I can restart it either directly or using
startsrc, and it appears to restart okay, but when I do a 'ps'
immediately thereafter the process is gone.  When I comment the
152.2.0.0 networks out of /etc/dhcpsd.cnf, everything works fine
again.  I have repeated this process several times and the results
are always the same.  Any suggestions?  The dhcp server SHOULD be
able to support multiple networks, shouldn't it?

By the way, the server's IP address is in the 204.85.192 range,
which is the range for which the server is working.  I have no idea
if this is relevant or not, but thought I'd throw it in.

Here is the dhcpsd.cnf file with the offending entries commented
out.

Well, I have completely retyped the config file and things seem
to be working as advertised.  Looks exactly the same, just works.

One of those mysterious invisible characters, I guess!?!

1. Configuring Multiple Gateways via DHCP

I'm puzzling over this one... I'm trying to configure our network to
have multiple gateways out to the Internet, so if one router goes down,
the other router will take over.

The default router would be something like 192.168.1.1, but 192.168.1.2
could also be a router.  Both routers have two nics, and each would use
our ISP-supplied router as their default gateway.

Is it possible to configure DHCP to give both gateways to the clients?
