Our dhcp server(RH6.2) was working correctly until recently. I'm not sure what has changed, but no Windows2K boxes can correctly obtain an IP from it. What's happening is that clients are continuously reobtaining leases(with different lease times). According to the logs the address is assigned successfully. On the client side however, the client does not get an IP. In the leases file, multiple leases appear for the same client, with the same IP, but different lease times. The issue only seems to appear on Win2k clients....I'm guessing it may have something to do with GMT times on the leases, and the clients interpreting them as local times? OR???
