I need to archive the dhcpd.lease file data for legal purposes. I need to retain all the dhcp lease information with the UID from the 1st day.
According to dhcpd.lease man page this file is over written from time to time, however it does not mention the frequency or on what condition is over written. I would like to find out what will be the best way to archive the dhcpd.lease file?
I do have the dhcpd.lease file and the dhcps.lease~ backup on the system available, but no sure on how often this file is updated -- should I be archiving it weekly, monthly or some other way?
