DHCP assign address start from the last ip in the range

Hi, just a question!

I am using DHCP 3.05 and the every thing works ok other than the assignment is in descending order. Is this the behavior or that I am doing something wrong?

Best Regards

Hi my configuration file is as below

deny duplicates;
ignore declines;
one-lease-per-client false;
log-facility local7;
allow booting;
allow bootp;

ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;

subnet netmask {

# --- default gateway
option routers;
option subnet-mask;

#option nis-domain "";
#option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers,;
option time-offset -18000; # Eastern Standard Time
# option ntp-servers;
# option netbios-name-servers;
# --- Selects point-to-point node (default is hybrid). Don't change this unless
# -- you understand Netbios very well
# option netbios-node-type 2;

range dynamic-bootp;
default-lease-time 21600;
max-lease-time 43200;

# we want the nameserver to appear at a fixed address
#host ns {
#hardware ethernet 12:34:56:78:AB:CD;


Thanks and Best REgards
