DHCP lease clarification

Unanswered Question
Apr 13th, 2010

I would like to verify the dhcp lease time.  The time is calculated from the moment a client receives a lease, not from when the dhcp server has set a release time.  Example.  A client requests a dhcp lease at 8:03am.  DHCP lease time is set for 24 hours.  The client stays online and at 8:03am the next day the IP address is renewed.  IT IS NOT if the client requests a lease at 7:30am and will receive a new address at the end of a 24 hour window time (ie, not 33 minutes latter at 8:03) that is set inside the dhcp server.

I have this problem too.

You already know this, I'm sure...but you are correct.
