Description

Situation: Mac OS X 10.11 client, wireless. DHCP is specified with 'myhostname' in DHCP Client ID.

In pfSense, DHCP Static Mapping for Client ID, IP address (outside pool, inside subnet - 10.78.0.28/23)

Renew DHCP lease, and a pool address is given, not the static mapping.

Looking at /var/dhcpd/etc/dhcpd.conf shows this:


host s_lan_13 {
option dhcp-client-identifier "myhostname";
fixed-address 10.78.0.28;
option host-name "myhostname";
}

So things appear configured correctly. No issues from dhcpd system logs:


May 16 21:25:16 dhcpd DHCPDISCOVER from f4:5c:89:8c:0d:f1 via em1
May 16 21:25:16 dhcpd icmp_echorequest 10.78.1.154: Host is down
May 16 21:25:17 dhcpd DHCPOFFER on 10.78.1.154 to f4:5c:89:8c:0d:f1 (myhostname) via em1
May 16 21:25:18 dhcpd DHCPREQUEST for 10.78.1.154 (10.78.0.2) from f4:5c:89:8c:0d:f1 (myhostname) via em1
May 16 21:25:18 dhcpd DHCPACK on 10.78.1.154 to f4:5c:89:8c:0d:f1 (myhostname) via em1

that is indeed the case. Appears it just doesn't work in dhcpd unless I'm missing something. Config is correct, and the dhcpd docs seem to indicate it can be used in that manner.
