Centos v.5, DHCP server running but not responding to clients
Posted on 2008-10-20
So Ive recently installed a Centos v.5 server (the frontend of a ROCKs cluster for those of you familiar with it) however, the DHCP server is not functioning.
When I boot a client who attempts to get a DHCP address from the server, the clients packets reach the server (determined with tcpdump) however the server never responds with a packet back to the client with an address.
The dhcpd daemon is running, there appears to be nothing unusual with the /etc/dhcpd.conf file, and I cant find any errors in any logs (although I may not be looking in the right place).
