The minimum amount of time before any node will be assigned a new IP should
be the lease time configured on the DHCP server.
You could try a couple of things: increasing the IP range ("pool"), so as to
not force reuses because the server is running shoirt of available IP
addresses to hand out, and increasing the lease time itself. i think that
the default behaviour of the dhcp client to to request the IP it previously
had, so that should help.

Subject: [suse-security] DHCP and IP Numbers ?

Hi !

I have a question about how DHCP is working. You see, I try to set up a
small cluster of boxes to do some parallel computing. The Name Resolution in
this cluster is supposed to work with DHCP. Things seem to run smoothly, but
after some time, my parallel process is interrupted, with no error message
at all. I `d like to know if DHCP reassigns new IPs after a certain amount
of time and if this could interrupt my parallel processes (I tried both
MPICH and rsh).

Any suggestions ?
