We are running netware 5 servcie pack 5 and using DHCP.
All client MAC address' have been entered into the DHCP table and they
DHCP requests to get their IP address.

Lately we have gotten a handfull of user becoming unauthorized in thetables.
We seem to have traced it back to an "unexpected packet decline" error
the DHCP server screen. When we see this on the server we can then
count on
that IP address being unauthorized in the tables.

Because we enter all MACS in the table it cannot be try to hand out
the same
IP twice. Also it should not be failing a ping test. Not sure where I
start looking. Thanks for the help.
