BAD_ADDRESS on DHCP

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'm seeing like 300 and the ip addresses are random.

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.

did you tried to reconcile the DHCP server, it will check the databse integrity and correct such issue

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.
