Hi experts :)

I have a serious problem with my DHCP Servers.

We just have move from site A to site B, this is the context.
We have 2 DHCP servers :

- The first one serving from 10.192.240.10 to 10.192.240.199 (mask 255.255.0.0)
- The second one serving from 10.192.241.10 to 10.192.241.199 (mask 255.255.0.0)

Since we have moved, the two scopes are filled in of BAD_ADDRESS.
This never appears before. It's very strange because the mac address corresponding to the BAD_ADDRESS are not coherent... eg :

10.192.240.40     BAD_ADDRESS     28f0c00a
10.192.240.41     BAD_ADDRESS     29f0c00a
10.192.240.46     BAD_ADDRESS     2ef0c00a
10.192.240.49     BAD_ADDRESS     31f0c00a

This is an exemple from the firs DHCP server. The second one experienced the same problem. As a consequence, when the scope is full, workstations can not connect to the network.

When I try to purge manualy the BAD_ADDRESS, they come back several minutes after...

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Vincent.
