Description

Configuring a wide dhcp range like this:

[root@HotSpot ~]# db dhcp  show
eth0=range
    DhcpRangeEnd=10.100.10.253
    DhcpRangeStart=10.100.10.5
    status=enabled


Dnsmaqs uses a maximum of 150 IP out of 248

cat /var/lib/dnsmasq/dnsmasq.leases | wc -l
150

This value is a default configuration by dnsmasq, see dhcp-lease-max.

Might be useful adjust this value according to the range configured, if bigger then 150

History

#1 Updated by Alessio Fattorini almost 5 years ago

  • Description updated (diff)

As workaround I created a template-custom like this
cat /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/dnsmasq.conf/81dhcp-lease-max
dhcp-lease-max=256

And expanded the template with:
signal-event nethserver-dnsmasq-update

The value of dhcp-lease-max should be calculated from DhcpRangeEnd and DhcpRangeStart properties.
