Description

So if create a dhcp reservation, allowing IP to be pulled from pool vs specific IP not in pool.

You get 2 entries listed in the dhcp leases status page.
1 showing the reservation and description given, but then a second entry showing the actual lease with IP given, but no description on the entry.

This does not seem to be expected behavior.. Would assume actual lease given showing the IP client got would contain the description field from the reservation. Also assume that once lease handed out with IP from pool, that only 1 entry would be shown.

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Subject changed from dhcp reservations with no ip assigned showing 2 leases and not description. to DHCP reservations with no IP address show entries in DHCP leases
  • Affected Version deleted (2.4.5-p1)

It's actually expected because the static section is not parsed from the lease database, but pulled from the configuration. It doesn't try to correlate the two lists. So it's not a bug, but could potentially be improved in the future.

I'm not sure how feasible it is to change the code so it has this capability, but it would be a good feature if it is possible.
