PIX 501 DHCP problem

My version 6.3(1) pix dhcp server worked fine for awhile, but now with increasing frequency, dhcp is serving a bad address (169.254.56.89) to my workstation. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: PIX 501 DHCP problem

Hi,

169.x.x.x is not the one that your DHCP is serving, but this is your Microsoft Windows, that acquires this address automatically if the NIC is not able to get an IP address from DHCP server. The questions now is Why? YOu need to check what your DHCP settings are, what is the scop defined? are your hosts exceeding the scoop limit? any syslog messages?
