Issue in assigning fixed DHCP address on Cisco-IOS router, using Ubuntu DHCP server

I have a DHCP Server which is an Ubuntu machine. I am trying to configure cisco IOS routers using dhcp. The routers are configured to receive fixed-DHCP IPs, however, dynamic DHCP configuration works but the fixed-DHCP it is not working.

 

Ubuntu [DHCP Server]: 16.04.5 LTS
Cisco Router [DHCP Client]: 7200, version 15.2(4)S5

 

DHCP Server config:

 

automation@automation:~$ sudo cat /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server | grep INTERFACES
INTERFACES="tap0"

automation@automation:~$ sudo cat /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf

ddns-update-style none;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;

authoritative;

log-facility local7;

subnet 198.51.100.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
# range 198.51.100.6 198.51.100.254;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
option routers 198.51.100.2;

host R1 {
hardware ethernet CA:01:3B:D4:00:08;
fixed-address 198.100.51.4;
}
}

automation@automation:~$ sudo systemctl status isc-dhcp-server

Mar 31 13:25:03 netman dhcpd[7448]: DHCPDISCOVER from ca:01:3b:d4:00:08 via tap0

 


DHCP Client config:

R1#sh int fa0/0
FastEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up 
Hardware is i82543 (Livengood), address is ca01.3bd4.0008 (bia ca01.3bd4.0008)
Internet address will be negotiated using DHCP

Re: Issue in assigning fixed DHCP address on Cisco-IOS router, using Ubuntu DHCP server

Your DHCP Range and allocation IP not matching ?

 

subnet 198.51.100.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
# range 198.51.100.6 198.51.100.254;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
option routers 198.51.100.2;

host R1 {
hardware ethernet CA:01:3B:D4:00:08;
fixed-address 198.100.51.4;   <<-- this should be in this range right ? (198.51.100.X )
}
}

 Change accordingly and restart DHCP deamon and try again and advise.
