    S2600WT2 BMC fails to renew dhcp address


      Hi there,


      we have a number of S2600WT2 servers and on occasion some (few) of them fail to renew their IP address via DHCP, e.g. after having restarted the dhcp server for maintenance. This is particularly annoying if the node was powered off since I can't reach it in-band, either, and thus lost all ability to control it.

      The only failsafe method to recover known to us is to break the physical network link momentarily, which apparently causes the bmc dhcp client to renew its address. Is this a bug in the bmc dhcp client? Has anyone experienced this situation before?

      Thanks & cheerio, Harry.
