Sonicwall showing static IP as dynamic DHCP lease

Posted on 2011-10-18

Hi all,

I have a Sonicwall NSA 2400 deployed that has a DHCP range of x.x.x.30 through x.x.x.49. WIthin that range on the network we have a fax server that utilizes x.x.x.47 as a static address. On the Sonicwall, it's showing that address as an active dynamic DHCP lease, even though the address is still directing to the fax server (nothing else is overcoming that IP).

Why is the Sonicwall behaving like this? That address shouldn't even be in the DHCP lease list.

    It is because it is within the range. Assign the fax server an IP outside of that range.

    That's what I had figured, but the type of dynamic under the lease item threw me off. Seems that they would list it differently. Thanks for the reply. I'll give you the points as long as nobody else has more detailed info today.
