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 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
