Odd behavior between Win 2000/Server dhcp client and Cisco Net. Registrar
We have observered an odd behavior when Windows 2000/Server dhcp clients lease an IP address from a Cisco Network Registar dhcp server. We are using CNR 3.5(3) and the dhcp server is configured to only lease one IP address per mac address. However, for the Windows 2000/Server clients, the dhcp database shows 11 IP addresses allocated to the server and the dhcp database shows that all 11 IP addresses are allocated to the same mac address. How is this even possible when the dhcp server is only supposed to lease one IP per mac? All 11 addresses get leased within a span of about 2 seconds, but only 1 of the 11 addresses is pingable and an ipconfig on the Windows 2000/server shows that the pingable address is actually the address assigned to the ethernet adapter on the client. Has anyone seen this behavior and know whether this is a Windows 2000/Server issue or a Cisco Network Registrar issue? If every Windows 2000/Server gets 11 addresses allocated to it, the IP address space will be used up very quickly!
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
