Delete Address leases in DHCP server RRS feed

  • Question

  • May i know is there any way to automatic delete address leases in DHCP Server (Windows 2003 SP2)?
    There a lot of unknown clients (mobile phones and iPads) connected via wireless and it causes the DHCP server run of IP addresses. Every day, i have to manually deleted the clients from the DHCP server but i can't block mobile phones so any way to delete clients from the DHCP server instead of do it manually?

  • Hi,

    Lower the default's lease time, your database will be cleaner in the end (but that will generate a bit more traffic)

    Thanks

  • In addition to yagmoth555,

    If your having to delete dhcp leases every day to free up available IP's this is a good indication that you may need to add additional subnets / ip address ranges to your scope and break up the assignments based on what ever method works best for your company.

  • In addition, buy a new wireless router just for your wireless devices. Configure the wireless router in a new subnet.

    Hi All

    I am also having the same issue in  my network ,  Network Range  range is 192.168.1.x ( 192.168.1.1 gateway ) and wireless access point  is 192.168.1.254

    the DHCP range is  from (192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.200)    Statis Ips for Servers are assigned from 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.99 .

    Number of clients systems + I phones , I pads may be around 70 , 

    But even though the DHCP Ip address are almost 100 the DHCP leases are expiring and not releasing /renewing

    Due to this the clients are not able to get Ips and getting APIPA Ips
