We have a dhcp server running on nw5.0 (sp5) box.For 2 days now we
experience some workstations that can't get IP, Based on the error onthe debug screen it seems that we are running out of IP address(out of

address for client...). What I did is manually release addresses fromthe console that were lease out in the last couple of days that are
not being use... The problem is most of the IPs that were manually
deleted becomes unauthorized and their expiration date change to Jan.1, 1970 and server keeps on receiving error "received an unexpected
decline packet identifying.... Please help...

Another problem is there are also some unauthorized IP address that
were not pingable and when manually deleted on the console ,it keeps
on sending error and after some time will come back on the console
still as unauthorized...

I really need help to solve the problem....

thank you in advance....
