Cisco DHCP index

timbrigham asked
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
One of my DHCP pools is receiving the current index being, and is therefore not handing out any new IP addresses.
The pool was only showing 30 addresses leased, out of a /26 field, so there should be plenty of addresses left. I verified that there weren't any IPs being used without leases.
I have tried restarting the router as well as just restarting the DHCP service, neither of which has resolved this condition.

How can I set this up to recycle all the unused addresses?

Can you post the DHCP parts of the config?


Here's the DHCP settings:

ip dhcp bootp ignore
<other working DHCP pools on different subnets>
ip dhcp pool Users41
   bootfile OSChooser\i386\startrom.com
   option 66 ip

The interface settings:
interface Vlan41
 ip address
 ip helper-address
 ip nbar protocol-discovery
 ip flow ingress
 ip flow egress
 service-policy output ManagedVOIP_Policy

interface FastEthernet0/0/1
 switchport access vlan 41
 vlan-id dot1q 41

That worked - thanks.
Those were actually one of the first set of commands I ran, but it's possible I ran them against the wrong router.

Thanks for the help, and the speedy response.
Could you choose that as the correct answer?  Thx!
