I have BAD_ADDRESS apearing in my windows DHCP server console.  i have tried to turning off the DHCP service and then doing a release and renew to see if I have a rogue DHCP server, but when  I do the ipconfig/renew I don't get a new IP.

If i delete the BAD_ADDRESS from the address lease section - it will reappear within 10 minutes.

I mean to go to the DHCP server and exclude one IP Address, and then go the machine and give it that IP add, and you are done.

no the BAD_ADDRESSes are eating up all of my free addresses - I need to have it stop so that I can continue to use DHCP.

The other thing we have noticed is that the Unique ID of the devce with the BAD_ADDRESS is 8 characters long as opposed to 12 characters long.

This is definitely not answered.  I have this same problem only one DHCP server, all dumb switches I can't figure out where these are coming from.
