I have just noticed a strange anomaly. After migrating my dhcpd server
a Fedora box to Suse, none of my Vista users can get IP addresses.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so, do you no of a solution?

Thank you,


Early on there was a bug in dhcp on 11.0 where dhcp would not update
dns. See:

I thought it was fixed, but it is still listed as new, so I guess
it's still
there. I bet that's your problem.


Thanks David. I gave the Vista machines static IP addresses. What is odd is
that the Vista machines can not find the dhcp server. I don't see any
requests from the Vista machines in the dhcp server logs. Is there a dhcp
server broadcast that I need to set in the server that the Vista machines
can recognize?

Thanks again,
