17:31:11: DHCPD: broadcasting BOOTREPLY

In DHCP binding i can see

172.28.92.220 004d.6173.7564.2020. Mar 02 1993 02:03 PM Automatic

5a61.6964.69

But the 172.28.92.220 address is not pingable.The MAC- address is of greater length then the usual norm.Can it be because of some Virus problem on client machines ?

Anyother solution ?

I have this problem too.

DHCP problems can arise due to a multitude of reasons. The most common reasons are configuration issues. However, many DHCP problems can be caused by software defects in operating systems, Network Interface Card (NIC) drivers, or DHCP/BootP Relay Agents running on routers. Due to the number of potentially problematic areas, a systematic approach to troubleshooting is required.
