Ubuntu Servers :: Setup A DHCP3-server On Brand New Learning 11.04 ?

Jun 3, 2011

I been trying to set up a DHCP3-server on my brand new learning Ubuntu 11.04 server. I can connect when i put the IP infomation in manually, so I know everything else is working, just got to fix the DHCP problem before I put the machine into production on my home LAN. Can someone tell me if these config files located at /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf and another at /etc/default/dhcp3-server are correct? eth1 is the NIC that will be the LAN side of the network, I double checked that...

/# A slightly different configuration for an internal subnet.
subnet netmask {
option domain-name-servers,;
option domain-name "linuxrouter.local";

The error was:

I changed permissions to 777:


To no avail!

It's got something to do with AppArmor.

I don't think it is installed on this system:

Ubuntu Servers :: Display The Addresses That Have Been Issued By My Dhcp3?

Jan 1, 2011

I want to display the associated host name with each address.

I've found the /var/lib/dhcp3/dhcpd.leases file, but it appears to have an entry for every time a lease was issued so it's hard to tell which ones are currently active.

Ubuntu Servers :: DHCP3 Won't Start / Restart - Sort It?

Feb 7, 2011

Ubuntu 10.10 w/ dual NICs

here's my etc/network/interfaces file code...

Here's the problem -- DHCP wont start and throws the error "Can't create PID file /var/run/dhcpd.pid: Permission denied." Somewhere I found a post that indicated that the following corrected the issue (I dont really know why):

ln -s /var/run/dhcp3-server/dhcpd.pid /var/run/dhcpd.pid
dhcpd3 -cf /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf eth1

When I do the above DHCP will start (in theory, at least no erros are thrown). But if I ask DHCP to restart, it will stop, but not restart. And the error is "No subnet declaration for eth1 ("

I'm newbie-ish. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Networking :: Cannot Get DHCP3-Server To Work Under Ubuntu 9.10

Jan 7, 2010

I've never had this much trouble, but maybe it's because I have not setup a dhcp3-server in some time.

My server has three NIC cards. The Internet connection is on eth2, and I'm trying to get connect other computers to the server through eth0.

It's suppose to be relatively easy, unless I'm assigning specifics, right?

Server :: DHCP3-Server Giving IP Addresses Depending On MAC

Apr 11, 2011

I have dhcp3-server (isc-dhcp-server) installed on my Debian and now I got a question about how it's giving the IP addresses to new devices.

For example: I connected my laptop and dhcp server gave me address. Will it always give me the same ip address when I connect my laptop or it will eventually change after some time (week-month)? If it's not changing it, then I am wrong about this.

BUT...If I am somehow correct and if it will change in a week and give me another random (like IP even I won't change my laptop network adapter, is it possible to configure dhcp server to always give same IP address depending on what MAC it is?

To make it clear, I want that when I connect new device (new laptop/pc) dhcp server would give it random IP but same time it would note the MAC address and never change the IP on that MAC.

I know about MAC filters, but setting filters is when you know MAC address since beginning and want to assign IP for it, but in my situation I don't know the MAC address.

Ubuntu Networking :: Disable Dhcp3-server On Startup?

Jun 26, 2010

I have an old Linksys WUSB54G USB wireless card lying around, and occasionally I like to use it as an access point for my laptop. For assigning IP addresses I use dhcp3-server. The only problem is that the server attempts to start itself up on boot, which I do not want- I want to start it up manually if I need it. how to disable this service on boot?

Ubuntu :: Server DHCP3 Stopped To Give Addresses / What To Fix It?

Mar 7, 2011

I'm writing because my ubuntu server has started with troubles .
It's running Linux 2.6.32-29-generic-pae kernel for ubuntu server 10.04 and after the last update it stopped from giving addresses on clients connected.
Dhcp3 server it's running and the conf files are fine, but i can only use static addresses assignation now...
Also MYSQL has stopped working (installed for Bacula purpose) but now the dhcp problem is the biggest issue. I work in an office where dhcp is fundamental, too much clients (about 15) that are personal laptops also (so static assignation for clients is not a good choose).
Please any one could help me? It's two days I'm trying to figure it out without success.
also tried removing and reinstalling dhcp3-serer...no way.
Here are my conf files code...

Debian Configuration :: DHCP3 Server Giving Wrong Ip Address?

May 20, 2011

Hey guys. I have a client computer PXE booting from my host computer and it is supposed to give the client the ip address however instead it gives it the ip address

I have this set up working with two other computers and there is no noticeable difference other than mac addresses for the network card.

Here is an extract from my '/etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf' file...

option domain-name "example.org";
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;


I have quadruple checked the mac address of the client and it is definitely "00:07:E9:32:16:81" so why is it not giving it the IP address that I have specified?

Networking :: DHCP3 Server - Setting Double Range Of IP Address

Apr 27, 2010

I would like to set a double range of IP address with my DHCP3-server. Now, I have eth0 (which is my only network card) with this IP address : and I have created a second interface eth0:1 with this address: The goal is to give an IP address 172.16.93.X to phones (with option 66) and the IP address 192.168.3.X to the computers.

This is my DHCPD.conf :
ddns-update-style none;
option domain-name "mycompany.com";
option domain-name-servers;
default-lease-time 3600;
max-lease-time 2347200;
log-facility local7;
option ip-forwarding off;
default-lease-time 20;
max-lease-time 20; .....

Right now my DHCP server work fine, (I means, no error at the startup ) but the server give always the same kind of IP address, whatever if it's a phone or a computer. I notice something "wired", if I put the :
subnet netmask {
option routers; }
(Which is first in the dhcpd.conf) after the "subnet netmask", the server will give IP address 172.16.93.X at all the clients. Is it possible to give more than one IP range with one network card at the same time? And how set the option 66 to only give IP address (172.16.93.X) to the phones?

General :: Distro To Use For Learning Server Device Drivers Programming?

Jan 9, 2011

So I want to know which is the best light weight distribution to use so that learning can be more generic and also does not involve distro specific nitty-gritty details. I have already tried building kernel for Ubuntu 10.04 but it involved different commands from what is mentioned in the book. So I am not sure whether I would be able to make further in the book. Has anybody tried?

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup The Server From The Beginning

Oct 8, 2010

I am completely new to everything linux, however I decided that it was time to do something with an old pc I had and I was thinking of setting it up as a home server. I look around for an easy guide on how to set up the server from the begining but I can't seem to find one that's good for a complete beginner like me.What I would like to do is to had the server as a place where I keep all my movies, music etc and be able to acces it from my home network and also from outside of it. Also, I would like to connect my two printers to this server and share them on the network.

Is there a place where I can find simple information about what I want to do and is it possible for a complete beginner like me to do what I want to do?

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Setup A TFTP Server

Nov 12, 2010

I am trying to setup a TFTP server and followed these instructions in setting up TFTP-HPA.


I pretty much followed every step but commented out these two lines from the /etc/xinet.d/tftp.

# only_from =
# interface =

Do we really need the lines if I am allowing any machine to connect? And I have only 1 network card. This is acting as a dedicated TFTP server.I ask as I get an error on the get and put commands as below:

tftp> get xxx.txt
tftp: error received from server <File not found>
tftp: aborting

However although it gives an error it DOES GET the file.The put command however does NOT put the file. I have nobody / nogroup setup for the directory permissions as well.

tftp> put .vimrc
tftp: error received from server <File not found>
tftp: aborting

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup A Server For The Company?

Jan 11, 2011

I need to set up a server for my company.There are only 4 people working here and we want a server that will allow us to run a cloud-like system. We want to be able to log in and use programs and have our files available from within the office and at home. I've used Citrix in the past and would like something similar, but free/open source if possible.I want an Ubuntu based server that gives the user a windows compatible environment. What I mean is it needs to be able to run windows software.What kind of hardware do I need? We want to run fairly resource hungry software like GIS and mapping software. I want to run Ubuntu server but what other software will I need?
