dhcpd.leases file does not get updated
This document (7009267) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
The lease file is not used when handing out addresses that are fixed.
Fixed-address assignments are not considered leases by dhcpd and thus they are not recorded in dhcpd.leases. To the client it looks like a "normal" lease is allocated, but on the server the fixed-address clients go through a completely different code path. They do not go through the same lease allocation routines, so the lease is not recorded in dhcpd.leases. The ISC dhcpd has always worked like this.
