Re: Cannot delete dhcp exclude address range

Try the command with only the lower address in the excluded range as an argument:

 

no ip dhcp excluded-address 172.24.20.2

Yep, I have exactly the same issue, this looks like a very annoying bug.

Re: Cannot delete dhcp exclude address range

no ip dhcp excluded-address command didn't work for me.

I got an error - Failed to remove. Maximum DHCP address limit of 5120 hit.

The most annoing is that dhcp server is disabled and no dhcp pools are defined on the controller.

Re: Cannot delete dhcp exclude address range

If that's the case why are you trying to remove that from the controller if is not defined on the controller ?

Thank you

Re: Cannot delete dhcp exclude address range

There was a pool difined for 172.16.0.0/16.  The pool size was to big. I've added additional exclusion to free up some aviable leases for an additional pool. Anfortunatelly it accepted exluded range but didn't free up leases.

I've decided to delete pool and recreated new pools. Now i have exluded renges which I cannot remove.

I've rebuild pool but still cannot delete them.

If I have a pool for network 172.16.0.0/16 and exclusion range 172.16.0.1 - 172.16.251.255

It should leave me scope for 1022 addresses in the range 172.16.252.1 - 172.16.255.254.

 

#show running-config | include dhcp

show multiple exlusion ranges and some of those ara listed twice.

Re: Cannot delete dhcp exclude address range

Problem was solved.

I've created a new small pool and re-enabled dhcp server. 

Than controller let me delete uneeded exludion ranges.

 

Thank everyone.
