What does authoritative param on a dhcp server?
Posted on 2015-02-24
I have a debian linux server with 3 ethernets which I'm using as a router. Ethernet 1 is connected to a client computer, ethernet 2 is connected to a server computer (which has some server functions like web-server, e-mail server, ...) and the third is connected to internet.
Client and Server computers are getting its IP addresses by DHCP, so I'm running isc-dhcp-server on my router computer.
I have uncommented the authoritative parameter on dhcpd.conf, and all works fine. However I don't understand this parameter. Where should this parameter should be disabled (commented) ?
