Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (CLOUDSTACK-8303) infinite lease times for a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol should be avoided (like the plague)
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2015 08:34:45 GMT

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

scripts/network/exdhcp/dnsmasq_edithosts.sh
scripts/network/exdhcp/dhcpd_edithosts.py

both contain the offending 'infinite'; changing that to say 86400 seconds (24 hours) is a
simple fix ; one might envision making it a configurable later

> The edithosts script in the SystemVM's currently doles out DHCP leases with infinite
validity.
> Considering the D in DHCP is for 'Dynamic', and considering it might be useful to change
the information in the lease every once in a while (such as resolvers, gateways & searches
etc.), it's very bad practice to do this.
> Currently, aside from one very exotic RFC, it's impossible to inform VM's of changing
network conditions because they simply won't fetch new leases.
> Please consider changing it to at max 1 week or something, or better: a configurable.
