isc-dhcp-server fails to renew lease file
Status in isc-dhcp package in Ubuntu:
Status in isc-dhcp source package in Trusty:
After raring upgrade, the dhcp server fails to renew lease file when
it tries to (about every hour).
The syslog says:
dhcpd: Can't create new lease file: Permission denied
It looks like a permission problem, because
# chown -R dhcpd:dhcpd /var/lib/dhcp
the above command temporarily solves the issue, until dhcpd is
restarted: at that time, the ownership of the directory and the lease
file is set back to root:root.
