3750 DHCP Pool Exhaustion Issue

Hi all,


I've ran into an issue with a dhcp pool on a WS-C3750-48P running  c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-50.SE2.  The UserVoice2 pool (see below) has  run out of addresses but should still have 10 left - debug ip dhcp  server events shows clients trying to get a lease and being knocked back  because the pool is exhausted.  I've included the config from another  pool called UserVoice1, which is set up identically and is working ok.


Has  anyone seen this issue before?  I can't see anything relevant on the  bug toolkit.



Thanks in advance,

Jason.

Hi Jason,


Is there any other command you my have in your config that excluded more addresses?  UserVoice2 shows you excluded 12 but your config shows only 2

Hi Reza,


No, there are only 2 addresses excluded from the pool, which is why i've been thinking there may be a bug in the IOS.  I'm not in a position to delete and recreate the pool unfortunately, so i don't know if that would have an effect.



Thanks,

Jason.

Hi Jason,


If you can't delete and recreate the pool, may be an after hour reboot can cause the switch to release those 10 IPs.

The other long term solution could be looking at upgradeing the IOS.  I think the latest on CCO is 12.2(53).
