Good time of day, SF people. I have created a manual DHCP binding entry on a Cisco router so that a client would always get leased to it. The clients wants to get the same address on both of his dual-boot linux systems. He tries to get an IP address leased and he succeeds on one of the dual-boot operating systems. When he reboots to another one he gets a lease for a completely different one.
I don't get it. The MAC addresses are the same (we checked in
ifconfig, so what could be happening here? Why is the router confused? Or is it something else?
Also, how can I check DHCP server IP address who I have got an IP address from (on Linux)?
Configuration on Cisco:
ip dhcp pool MANUAL_BINDING0001 host 192.168.0.64 255.255.255.0 hardware-address dead.beef.1337 dns-server 192.168.8.11 default-router 192.168.0.254 domain-name verynicedomainigothere.cn
PS. Is it mandatory to use
client-name configuration line?
