Location of DHCP-Lease-File

Post by sitig » 17 May 2018 21:47

Hi All

I need help locating the dhcp-lease-file on 6860. I need to flush all the leases.

Grateful for your assistance.

Cheers

Siti

Hi,
All the dhcp-files are within /flash/switch-folder. Look into the dhcpbind-file. You can delete this.

Hi Silvio

Thanks for your response.

Yes, I noticed the dhcpBind.db file but it seems to be empty. I used vi and the "more" command to view the contents but it seems to be empty.

I've logged an ESR, any update from AL support will be updated here.

Cheers

The time of the last "granted" is same like the time of the file. So it seams to me, that the leases there are stored.
What happens if you disable (and restart) your dhcp (maybe with a short lease time within your conf-file)? Are you able to delete with this all your entries?
In network guide you find the config of the pcy-file. Maybe this is the way to delete all your leases: ActiveLease Expiration = Full_delete (or ActiveLease Expiration = on I am not sure).

Hi Silvio

I've managed to achieve this.

In the 6860, the file is dhcp.db instead of dhcpSrv.db.

The following was what I did:
- disable the dhcp-server
- copy dhcp.db to olddhcp.db
- delete dhcp.db file
- enable the dhcp-server
- restart the dhcp-server

After the above procedure, I can now see new leases using the lease time configured in the dhcpd.conf file.

This is my dhcpd.pcy file content:
HonorRequestLeaseTime=False
RegisteredClientsOnly=False
ForceClass=None
ActiveLeaseExpiration=On

Thanks a lot for your assistance.

Cheers
Siti
