SOLVED: DHCP server assigning addresses from wrong pool

[ Edited ]

2nd DHCP issue in as many days.

 

EX3300 running legacy DHCP server is incorrectly distributing addresses from an adjacent pool. Output from dhcp_logfile shows the DHCPDISCOVER being received on 172.20.1.33. This should generate a offer from the 172.20.1.32/27 pool but something happens and the server selects an address from the 172.20.1.0/27 pool.

 

*** dhcp_logfile ***
Mar 21 11:36:44 received packet from 0.0.0.0 port 68 interface vlan.791 routing instance default
Mar 21 11:36:44 Link local IP: 0
Mar 21 11:36:44 -- looking for pool with subnet 172.20.1.33, prefix length 32
Mar 21 11:36:44 -- [pfxlen 25] Found pool `172.20.1.0/27'

 

 

 

UPDATE: Solved this with a restart of the dhcp service:

>restart dhcp
