IP conflicts using DHCPLocked
Gentlemen (and ladies),
I’ve got a weird problem here that I would love to get some thoughts on.
I’ve got an office here using a private C class IP range, and I’m assigning my clients addresses out of a DCHP scope.
Every so often, some people get pop-up messages about IP conflicts. However, none of the classical problems exist here. I am not reserving addresses, there are no addresses assigned statically from inside the range, no exclusions, etc.
It is all really straightforward. Myonly conclusion is that for some reason, DHCP is assigning the same address to more than one client simultaneously.
When I go into the scope properties, all of the addresses that were double-assigned are listed as bad, and then I purge them, but it happens again and again.
My DHCP lease is the standard 3 days. Any thoughts on what is going on here? It is driving me bonkers.
