Question Problem with dhcp server


when i assign ip manually to a machine it gets ping by server and it also itself pings server but when i chose to use client machine as dhcp , so that it can directly get assigned ip from server, it does not get ip, instead random ip is provided which is out of range specified at server side in /etc/dhcpd.conf file.

what's the problem?

any setting?

Can you post the content of /etc/dhcpd.conf ?

Means your dhcp server is not correctly configured. Make sure the dhcpd service is running.

#service dhcpd status
When client system can't find any ip from DHCP server they acquire an ip automatically from this range 169.254.0.1-169.254.255.254.
Thats why its getting that random ip which should be from this range.
