What does this DHCP server log message mean?


#1

What do the first two messages below mean? It seems to have been chopped off at the end.
Thanks.

Jan 23 23:55:30 DHCP Server: In server 10.11.12.44, IP 10.11.12.101 is already using
Jan 23 23:55:30 DHCP Server: In server 10.11.12.44, IP 10.11.12.100 is already using
Jan 23 20:54:22 DHCP Server: 10.11.12.44 assigned 10.11.12.109 to a0:32:99:06:ba:1b, lease time 86400

Hi Michael,

Jan 23 23:55:30 DHCP Server: In server 10.11.12.44, IP 10.11.12.101 is already using
Jan 23 23:55:30 DHCP Server: In server 10.11.12.44, IP 10.11.12.100 is already using

DHCP logs above showing IP address 10.11.12.101 & IP 10.11.12.100 are used by other devices in the network. Thus, DHCP server will not releasing the IP address to the network although the IP address is in the DHCP Pool.

Possible to let’s us know any issue found when you get the above logs ?

Thank You

No issue or problem. It just looks like the message was truncated because of the wording.
I will now take it to mean that 10.11.12.101 is “already in use” rather than it “is already using”.
No big deal. Thanks.
